Book Description

April 1 2006

The psalms are among the most sublime poetry in the world, offering us inexhaustible wells of meaning. Herbert O'Driscoll adeptly dips into their sacred depths and draws up sparkling insights to refresh the soul. Our contemporary spirits can feel at home in the world of psalms. All of human experience is there - joy and sadness, love and anger, trust and despair. The gift of the psalms lies in their challenge to us; they invite us into dialogue with them and with the God who inspired them. The psalms guide us to express our deepest feelings to God, and their response floods the soul with assurance. Justice is done. Healing takes place. Grace is given.

Praise for God with Us: The Companionship of Jesus in the Challenges of Life: "God with Us, approached in a spirit of openness and honesty, can be transforming. Its thought is deep but its language is accessible - written with sensitivity and spirituality." -Montreal Anglican

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book to be used & shared July 9 2012
By Rev. Mark E. Waldo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Herbert O'Driscoll has both reaped a great harvest fom the Psalms, which is not unique. What is unique is that the reader can use this book for one's own journey through life; and also can use it to give powerful insight to the reader's friends.
I have used this with a Sunday School class for elderly males, and asked of them the same questions that Herbert asks of his readers. The chosen psalm is the one to be read at this Sunday's service following the class. The results are, of course, diverse; but the responses sharpen, deepen, and enlighten readers of both the familiar and the unfamiliar Psalm of that Sunday. What might have been a tennis match, by verse or by half-verse, between the reader and the responses of the congregation, becomes a nourishing feast for the congregation who had previously only made the sounds with their mouths, but were [by having red this book] equipped themselves to respond with their hearts and souls! The richly penetrating issues that O'Driscoll raises are more current than the evening TV news [and far less biased one way or another].
Anther good way to harvest the riches of this reflective volume is to read each morning one Psalm; then, through the tasks and events of that day, with the day's blessings and challenges, the reader can use his reflective exercise to mirror his own blessings and burdens.
Either way, together or alone, the reader has been given by Dr. O'Driscoll the substance and nourishment that this volume provides from the Psalms as a spiritual harvest for all readers, both old and young. Mark E. Waldo, Sr.
