Prolific author explores the beauty of a timeless masterpiece
SAN FRANCISCO — The Psalms make up the most popular, and most universally loved and used book in the Bible. Peter Kreeft reflects on a dozen of the most well-known Psalms, including Psalm 23 and 51, and leads readers on a spiritual journey through the book of Psalms in his latest book, WISDOM FROM THE PSALMS.
Kreeft, Ph.D., professor of philosophy at Boston College, is one of the most respected Christian authors of our time. His many bestselling books cover a vast array of topics in spirituality, theology and philosophy: How to Be Holy, Practical Theology, Back to Virtue, Because God Is Real, You Can Understand the Bible, Angels and Demons, Heaven: The Heart’s Deepest Longing, and A Summa of the Summa, just to name a few.
In WISDOM FROM THE PSALMS, Kreeft leads the reader through his personal explorations of this deep ocean of divinely inspired spiritual water, pulling up treasures for the soul along the way. The Psalms are a timeless masterpiece, and while Kreeft does not pretend to write a comprehensive guide to the work, WISDOM FROM THE PSALMS is written for both beginner and novice readers, highlighting the lessons and insights that can be learned and applied to life.
“Peter Kreeft is the foremost living apologist for God’s existence, and his work in this area has earned him a place with Newman and Pascal,” said Scott Hahn in the foreword to the book. “He has been around a long time and yet can still write books that exude a young man’s vigor and joy. Not only that, he can still ride a surfboard better than most of us could in our teens. But I have come to herald him, not to praise him or bury him. So I urge you to move now from promise to fulfillment, and admire the perennially youthful and always fresh craft of Kreeft.”
