Why God Hides: And where to Find Him
Fr. John Portavella
Why does God hide from those of us who yearn to hear His voice? When we do well, there’s no heavenly applause. When we do evil, no divine rebuke. Now comes this book of Fr. John Portavella, written after many decades of listening to God’s silence – in his own life and in that of thousands of his parishioners.
Those years of listening, reading, thinking, and praying have made ever more clear to him – and with the help of this book, will make clear to you – that, in fact God is not silent nor is He hidden, if only you know how to listen and learn where to look. Time and again in the events of salvation history and in the trials and joys of our daily lives, Fr. Portavella here unveils the Face of God and lets us hear His voice, speaking in every instance words of love.

Psalms Conversations: Listening in as They Talk with One another
James O. Chatham
Using the insights of the "shape and shaping of the Psalms", James Chatham presents a study for nonexperts to explore the interactions that various psalms have with one another. The book invites us to listen in on several psalm conversations, to realize how contemporary they are, and to join them.
Chatham encourages us to immerse ourselves in the mind, heart, and world of the Psalms editor, to get to know those editors well, and to realize that their world was, in important ways, very much like ours. Through this process, the messages spoken by the Psalms emerge with words of faith about everyday issues in human living, both then and now.
