A Living Psalter: Creative Reflections on the Book of Psalms is one faith community’s atttempt to appropriate the ancient hymns of Israel in a postmodern context. This book is filled with poetry, art, photography, and short stories that provide creative reflections on the Book of Psalms. They invite the reader into a faithful, yet deeply human conversation with God. The creative work in this book covers the extremes of human emotion from exuberant praise to heart-heavy lament. It is a great resource for rediscovering the Psalter as the central prayer book of the church.

“Prayer changes things.” It’s a common saying, and too often Christian discussion of prayer deals only with how we can change other things and other people through prayer. But what if prayer is much more that we imagine? What if it is also the means of correcting our relationship to the Creator and at the same time of changing our relationships with one another? Perhaps prayer can ultimately help transform our theology, what we believe about God, into character and action.
In Ultimate Allegiance, Dr. Bob Cornwall takes us to the Lord’s Prayer, a short and simple prayer that is well-known and often recited. But in each of its major petitions, he finds deep meaning that challenges us to think and to change. In fact, this prayer of Jesus brings us to the ultimate question of just where we should place our ultimate allegiance.
