about

This book is an exploration and interpretation of the diverse symbols and images that represent the sacred presence of God in the Book of Psalms. These images of sacred spaces and objects represent diverse conceptions of "the sanctuary" or sacred spaces, objects and texts that mediate God's presence and bridge the gap between the ineffable nature of God as transcendent and beyond human comprehension and as immanently and intimately present in human experience. I explore the multivalent ways in which images of sacred spaces and objects facilitate prayer and contemplation. This book represents a valuable contribution to the study of Psalms and biblical theology, spirituality and prayer.
Steven Dunn is assistant professor of religious studies and biblical studies at Alverno College.

Editorial Reviews

Accessibly written and scholarly informed, Steven Dunn's study captures the heart and soul of the Psalter: God's "sanctuary" presence, a paradoxical presence that is both concealed and conveyed in the Psalms. Remarkably wide-ranging, Dunn's treatment reveals in new ways the Psalms' relevance for contemporary practice.
