A princess dies, bombs explode in the desert, currencies collapse, governments stumble and fail. In a world of stress and pressure, of shorter deadlines and instant communication, how can we enter into the blessing of God?
Reading through the Psalms – the ancient prayers and praises of God’s people – we learn how we can still seek the shelter of his care, how his touch can send us out to reveal that love to others. In this book of meditations on selected Psalms, James Jones suggests ways of finding God’s blessing, even at the times when we feel that life is no more than a strugtgle to survive. Helpful prayer exercises are included, ideal for personal prayer or adaptable for group use.
The Rt. Revd James Jones is the Bishop of Liverpool.
He broadcasts regularly on Radio 4 as part of the Thought for the Day team, and has written a number of books including Why do People Suffer? (Lion) and Findin God (DLT), as well as editing the Following Jesus series for BRF. People of the Blessings has been revised after first being published by BRF as The Rainbow of Blessing in 1991.
