Songs of Joy: New Meditations on the Psalms for Every Day of the Year by Joan Chittister is a sequel to The Psalms, a devotional work organized around this Old Testament resource. The author is founder and Executive Director of Benetvision: A Resource and Research Center for Contemporary Spirituality with headquarters in Erie, Pennsylvania. Chittister is our spiritual director here serving up a smorgasbord of quotations and insights based on Psalms 90, 126, 73, 51, 52, 86, 180, 46, 16, 19, 34, and 1. She challenges us to reframe our understandings of time, laughter, simplicity, self-knowledge, talent, God's ways, commitment, stillness, self-esteem, tradition, internal peace, and new life. Chittister is well read, ecumenical, and visionary. These devotions based on the ancient psalms fuel our interest in pioneering a bold and imaginative Christianity for the future.
