NIV Psalter

posted by Scot McKnight

PrayerCandle.jpgThere has been so much interest in this new Psalter, we’re posting this post again.

I knew it would eventually be done, and it has: Paraclete has produced a beautiful NIV Psalter called: The Paraclete Psalter: A 4-Week Cycle for Daily Prayer
 I have used for years The Book of Common Prayer
, and have an old copy with Coverdale’s translation. But we need an NIV Psalter, and now it’s available.
Paraclete designed this Psalter to be used either by individuals or by groups; it divides the psalms so they can be read in the course of month. Very little repetition and wise selection for each prayer time.
The Psalter uses four prayer moments during the course of a single day: Morning prayer (Lauds), Midday prayer, Vespers and Compline. One Appendix, providing the canticles of Luke (Benedictus, Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis). The user can add Gloria Patri, Jesus Creed, Lord’s Prayer or the Jesus Prayer whenever he or she wants. 
Elegantly produced with a leather cover and fine paper with a nice font.

Mine just arrived at the door. I was hoping to get it in time for Lent. Thanks for letting me know about it.
After my quick once over I noticed a few things:
1. LOVE the leaver binding.
2. LOVE how the psalms and devos are set up.
3. WISH the paper were a bit thicker.
Thanks!
Wes

I received mine today as well. It is a lovely book, and I’m planning to make use of it during Lent. Thanks for the recommendation.

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
