Man first felt and then reasoned, first prayed and then divined. The revelation of the living God respected this anthropological constant. And in a humane way, he granted the theological intellect as a companion to the burning heart. So that it doesn't get lost in the way of the vast and multi-layered feeling.
The Psalms act as such a compass...
Poetry is always intended for the unconventional, for the essential, for the "precious in the sight of God" (1 Peter 3: 4). And when he receives the blessing to speak collectively in the context of Worship, "with one mouth and one heart", then he performs the irreplaceable task of uniting the "precious" of the faithful into one, trains them to agree on the key priorities, orients the community of their lives towards the divinely essential. To "the altars of the Lord of hosts" (Ps. 83: 4).
A book dedicated to those who struggle in their lives in similar climates and sail in waters like those mapped by the Psalms, whether inside or outside the Church.
