The world of the psalmist is ever alert to the Lord's reign. Even the unspeakable, the sorrow of oppression, the terror at the unknown, the anguish of the unjustly wronged - all these voices of lament are transformed into voices of praise. In In the House of the Lord, Michal Jinkins poses the question What would it mean for us to inhabit the world of the psalmist?" and in so doing draws us into a world that has long awaited our arrival.

Focusing primarily on the psalms of lament, Jinkins shows what it would mean for us to learn to inhabit the world of the psalms: to enter a world where we recognize the reign of the Lord, to practice the habitation of God as a living discipline, and to discern the sacred quality of all life. He examines why the psalms are neglected in the hymns and liturgies of many churches and offers an introduction to the scope of the psalms. By providing a pastoral and liturgical reflection on the psalms, Jinkins shows in practical terms how individuals and communities can "inhabit" the psalms to make them a genuine framework for their faith life.

The psalms invite us to enter into that world which shaped the theology and self-understanding of the people of Israel for centuries. In the House of the Lord offers a previously unimagined source for congregational leadership, pastoral care and counseling, spiritual renewal, and worship.

Chapters are "Inhabiting the World of the Psalms," "The Church as a Community of Lament," "Locating Ourselves in the Psalms of Lament," and "The Psalms of Lament in the Life of the Church." Includes the perspectives of Thomas Merton, Augustine of Hippo, Walter Brueggemann, Annie Dillard, and Abraham Herschel. The texts of the psalms are included.
