The Wind, the Fountain and the Fire

Scripture and the Renewal of the Christian Imagination: The 2020 Lent Book
  • By Mark Barrett
Product Description

The 2020 Lent Book from Bloomsbury is based around an analysis of the imagery of the Psalms.

The Book of Psalms has always formed the substance of the daily prayer of Christian monks and nuns. In The Wind, The Fountain and the Fire, a Benedictine monk offers a path for all of us through the five weeks of Lent, by opening the Psalms as a gateway to scriptural prayer.

Powerful imagery abounds in these ancient poems of prayer. The book finds in these images keys which can unlock both our understanding of scripture and knowledge of our own hearts. The chapter themes are: The Desert, the Mountain, the Well, the Pool and the Tomb. The Psalter is seem to be both the gateway to and the summation of all the other books of the Bible. The psalms put into words the messy complexity of how we actually experience our relationship with God and one another as well as all the swamps and wild places of our private emotions.
