Item description for Psalms of Comfort by Barbara Jurgensen...

Overview
We all must cope with life's trials and tribulations -- and there's no greater source for the comfort and support we need than the book of Psalms. Not only can the Psalms help us make it through difficult times, but they can also help us become stronger in our faith and in our ability to face each new day and its problems. Combining brief scripture excerpts with prayerful reflections, the uplifting meditations in Psalms of Comfort provide wisdom and sustenance for dealing with life's struggles. Whether you're facing serious illness, risky surgery, the death of a loved one, a faltering marriage, the betrayal of a friend you trusted, the wrongdoing of others (or yourself), or the stark reality of our eventual departure from this earth, Jesus reaches out his loving arms and says, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."

Reviews - What do customers think about Psalms of Comfort?

Help for the sick and those in need of comfort  Dec 12, 2006
As a hospital chaplain I look for literature that helps the acutely ill and those seeking spiritual help during times of recovery in the hospital. The short readings and prayers contained here provide that help. I purchased 240 copies which were placed in each bedside table. Within a short time I ordered more to replace the ones that had been taken home and sold through the gift shop.
 
truly comforting  Sep 1, 2006
I find that this book brings comfort to readers who are in difficult circumstances and in need of comfort. I appreciate the larger print for easier reading.
It is clear to me that the writer has an understanding of life's troubles and brings the comforting words from Psalms to touch us in our present day concerns. The reader can see how s/he is not alone.
 
A Blessing for the Poor in Spirit  Jun 7, 2006
I have been comforted and inspired by the writings of Barbara Jurgensen for more than thirty years. This little collection of Bible verses and prayers will touch the hearts of all who love Jesus and who seek his presence in the midst of pain or distress. A blessing to "the poor in spirit," this book is intended to guide the devotions of the anxious or the suffering, leading them into the love of God.
 
"Comfort, comfort my Children"  May 31, 2006
This little powerhouse book begs to be purchased in quantity. You'll find yourself giving your own copy away all the time. The author has a keen insight into the living, breathing, vibrant rhythms of God's voice of divine comfort, and takes the reader into the celestial presence of the Almighty on every page. There are many categories of Psalms, enthronement psalms, thanksgiving psalms, praise psalms...however; the largest collection is classified as lament psalms. Lament is merely a dressed up theological terminology for complaint psalms. This has always been the uniqueness of this book and Barbara Jurgensen lays bear the muck of life with a Lord that says to us, "The complaint department is open...open your heart, hold nothing back, you're safe with me and I care." Real life stories interlace with key Psalms soon merge to become our stories, our life, our struggles, and our personal redemptive words of encouragement.
 
Great for many uses  May 24, 2006
Dr. Jurgensen verbalizes the many different emotions we all face and offers a meditation based on an appropriate verse from the Psalms. The wide gambit of human emotions faced in time of crisis and loss are dealt with here. This small book is ideal for use with people from all walks of life and in various situations (home, hsopital, nursing home, long-term care, etc.). This is a book one will turn to time and time again for comfort and hope in both storm and calm. Buy one for yourself and one for a friend. "Psalms of Comfort" could also serve as a basis for discussion and Bible study.
