Honest. Fearless. Prayer.
Stop tiptoeing around in fear of offending God. With him, there are no secrets. Animate your prayers with the depth and honesty of your whole heart--from joy and awe to shame, fear, and even inconsolable rage.

The Message of Psalmswill show you how. Eugene Peterson's fresh rendering of this ancient book of prayers reveals how, like a child with a parent, people have always come to God--and God invites you to do the same.
