Description

If a woman wrote the psalms this is what they would sound like. While there are many books for women featuring the psalms, Barbara J. Monda is the first to offer a woman's version of these beloved sacred songs. She reveals a feminine image of God that embodies the strong yet nurturing feminine persona. Writing with a deep understanding of a woman's spiritual perspective, Monda has created poetry that speaks of God in both feminine and neutral terms. More than a new translation or the simple interjection of feminine language, here you will find a new vision of the psalms, fashioned through the passionate and enlightened eyes and heart of a woman.

Praise

"These psalms are beautifully done."

"These psalms are beautifully done. The images are strong, the rhythm is clear, and the prayers come across as full of meaning for the present. I particularly like Monda's use of the traditional, scriptural concepts that are nonsexist in connotation: el Shaddai, Ruach, Sophia, etc.

Joan Chittister, O.S.B., author of The Gift of Years

"Truly inclusive and wholesome."

"I was deeply touched as I read these psalms — they have a powerful beauty that is truly inclusive and wholesome.
