A Gift Of Starlight

I live in a place where seeing the stars on a crystal summer night is commonplace; the edison lights of strong cities are distant and enveloped in the blackness of velvet, maritime nights.

The beautiful truth about gazing at the stars is not that one simply looks at their shimmering beauty and appreciates their gift, but rather that their aged beauty looks into us.

Seeing what it can see, the entering starlight parts the soft curtains of our soul, scintillates the lifewaters it finds, and draws from our lips a breath of thanks.


Sheltering Mercy: Prayers Inspired by the Psalms

Sheltering Mercy, along with its companion volume, Endless Grace, helps us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. This book contains 75 prayers drawn from Psalms 1-75, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning in the Psalms. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

This artful, poetic, and classic devotional book features compelling custom illustrations and foil-stamped hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms.
