The Episode | One Fifty [7]:

“We don’t have to please God in any other way than to be brutally honest; that is the root not only to a relationship with God but the root to a great song . . . or any work of art of merit.” — Bono

The Psalms are the prayer book and the song book of the Bible. This collection of ancient poetry, sometimes described as the "gut of the Bible", takes on an authentic journey of the human relationship with God - from the highest highs, to the darkest depths.

It is here, in these poems, songs and prayers that we are dragged into the reality of being human before God. The Psalms in their stark honesty guide us beyond just talking about God by showing us how to talk to God.
