200 devotional psalms from the depths of a heart yearning for union with Jesus

In a poetic exploration of the mystery of union with God, Psalms for Jesus offers rich heart songs about the intimacy and transformation we experience when we participate in God's love and divine nature. Bebawi, one of the world's leading scholars on Eastern Christianity, shares profound and personal meditations on divine love and union written over many years of joys and struggles.

Drawing on scripture, theology, and his own spiritual practice, Bebawi has penned 200 reflective psalms that will stretch our traditional thinking about the perceived distance between God and humanity. The collection explores deeply contemplative themes like: the infinite mystery of God's divine love seen in the Incarnation and the Cross; our shared humanity with Jesus; and how when we participate in this infinite divine love, we partake in His divine nature. In this way, these psalms gently lead us to discover what St. Athanasius wrote in the 4th century, that the Word "became man that we might become divine; and he revealed himself through a body that we might receive an idea of the invisible Father..."

Stirring, thought-provoking, and full of profound devotion, Psalms for Jesus is a landmark collection that leaves the reader with a truly reorienting question: What if union with Christ is much more attainable in this life than we ever thought possible?
