Description:

The crown jewel of the Old Testament, the Book of Psalms occupies a special place in the hearts of Jews and Christians alike. Now, this sublime retreat invites you to immerse yourself in its lyrical beauty. The Psalms have played a central role for believers since the dawn of the Church. In this 9-part audio retreat, renowned Old Testament scholar Fr. Michael Guinan, O.F.M., Ph.D., expertly guides you through these timeless works. He introduces you to their composition and history before explaining their practice. Composed of 150 individual psalms, the Book of Psalms is actually an immense anthology of beautiful prayers. The Psalms are widely noted for their poetic qualities and over time have been set to music by such famous composers as Bach, Vivaldi, and Mozart. In this retreat, Fr. Guinan teaches you how to follow the model provided by the Liturgy of the Hours in the Morning and Evening Prayer—traditionally known as the Lauds and Vespers. Adapting the full four-week psalter into seven sections that correspond to the days of the week, Fr. Guinan’s audio retreat fits into your busy schedule. This convenient audio retreat allows you to take in the Book of Psalms’ melodic hymns and laments while you commute, exercise, or relax. What better way is there to learn about the Psalms than by listening?
