The Church of England publishes Reflections on the Psalms

The Church of England publishes Reflections on the Psalms

Church House Publishing, the publishing arm of the Church of England, has issued a new book on the Psalms. The book is available in print, eBook and iOS app forms. An Android version is forthcoming. All of the versions are a bit on the pricey side. The print and eBook versions are the same price, £14.99, and are available directly from Church Publishing House. The iOS app version is available from the US iTunes App Store for $11.99.

Reflections on the Psalms is written for those wishing to follow the ancient custom of reading morning and evening Psalms. The resource includes reflections, or meditations, on the psalms by Church of England bishops, clergy, theologians and scholars, the same team that previously produced the Reflections on Daily Prayer. There is an introduction by Paula Gooder, a popular British writer and lecturer on biblical studies. There is also a guide to the Psalms in the life of the Church by the Bishop of Sheffield, the Rt Revd Steven Croft. Each of the updated reflections on all 150 psalms includes the corresponding psalm refrain and prayer from the Common Worship Psalter of the Church of England. Longer psalms follow the lectionary and are broken into corresponding parts.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
