Item description for Singing The Songs Of The Brokenhearted: Psalms That Comfort And Mend The Soul by Bill Crowder...

Overview
Nowhere are the personal depths of grief and the cry of the broken heart more clearly revealed than in the Psalms. Through their honest, gut-level responses to their real-life circumstances, the psalmists show joy, anger, bitterness, guilt, resentment, vindictiveness, and most of the other emotions all of us feel at some time in our lives. In looking carefully at Psalms 6, 12, 13, 22, 32, 39, 42, 56, 69, and 73, the author explains how they reveal the truth about our own grief, despair, defeat, guilt, fear, desperation, hate, stress, unfairness, and sin. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted; assures the psalmist. In a pain-filled world, only He can heal our broken hearts.

Reviews - What do customers think about Singing The Songs Of The Brokenhearted: Psalms That Comfort And Mend The Soul?

What Becomes of the Brokenhearted  Apr 18, 2009
Are you dealing with grief, sadness, or despair? Take heart, this book "Singing the Songs of the Brokenhearted - Psalms that Comfort and Mend the Soul" by author and pastor Bill Crowder, is a breathe of fresh air for the tired heart.

Who could know you better than your Creator? The Psalms were written for you from your Creator to include all the highs and lows of your life. But for the times when you are brokenhearted, the Psalms are especially soothing.

Bill Crowder has taken selected passages of the Psalms and illuminated those passages that speak to the weary and downtrodden, giving a fresh perspective using modern day music lyrics which offer words of hope and encouragement.

Particularly interesting is comment he makes about the Psalms and its honesty,

"One of my seminary professors said that in the Bible we have sixty-five books in which God speaks to us, and one book in which we speak to God - the Psalms. And when the psalmists speaks to God, they do so without any attempt at religious propriety. There is no attempt to swath everthing in spirituality. There is no interest in saving face. There is just honesty."

Honesty is the common denominator in all grief. When we suffer, we do not need to hear platitudes or well meaning sympathetic comments.

In despair we need honesty.

Drawing on his years of pastoral experience, Bill Crowder expounds on those chosen to write the Psalms, revealing the history of what these psalmist were going through as these psalms were written.

Perspective is a beautiful thing, especially in times of Grief (Psalm 6), Despair (Psalm 12), Defeat (Psalm 13), Guilt (Psalm 32), Fear (Psalm 39), Desperation (Psalm 42), Hate (Psalm 56), Stress (Psalm 69), Unfairness (Psalm 73), and Sin (Psalm 22).

Read this book for a fresh view of the Psalms.
