Meditating on the Psalms offers spiritual insights into 52 of the bestloved Psalms with an original translation and a devotional commentary. The discussion of each Psalm ends with a related Christian prayer, either from the tradition or written by the author, John Eaton, himself. There is also an introduction that explains the background to the Psalms -- who wrote them and why -- and their importance throughout the ages. No one is more qualified to write on the Psalms than John Eaton. He is a distinguished scholar, now retired, and has spent a lifetime studying the Psalms. His pastoral work and his concern for the environment and ecology give him great sympathy for the wide-ranging material found in the Psalms. The Psalms are widely regarded as some of the greatest poetry ever written. Meditating on the Psalms makes them accessible to readers of all ages and all denominations and will be widely welcomed as a useful aid to prayer.
John Eaton lectured in Old Testament at Birmingham University until his retirement. He is the author of many books, including The Psalms, which can be used by pastors and bible study leaders in conjunction with Meditating on the Psalms.
