In Bread in the Wilderness
, Merton looks at the psalms as poetry; in this book he regards them as prayer. Guiding you through the more representative psalms, he explains why the Church also considers the psalms as the best way to praise God.
"Merton shows us how to draw out the richness of worship from the psalter and to use it to achieve 'the peace that comes from submission to God's will and from perfect confidence in him.'" -Catholic Review Service
