Introducing: Joel Auge

Many years ago I linked hearts with a passionate artist and poetic thinker in Ontario named Joel Auge. He was a part of a network of faithful friends fighting to give voice to the glories of God in a postmodern world.

He married a beautiful woman named Michelle, and continued to write and make music as he worked creating web sites, doing design and serving as many people as possible. Now he’s signed with Integrity Music as one of their new artists, and I couldn’t think of a greater heart I would love to have mingling in the circles of the contemporary worship music industry.

If you don’t love what flows out of this man, from his authenticity to his artistic integrity, I’m REALLY sorry. He’ll have to capture certain artistic ideas, I’m sure, outside of his current label connection (just because that’s the way an industry works), but I have great confidence in who he is as an artist and where he will choose to go.

Sheltering Mercy and Endless Grace help 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. Sheltering Mercy helps the reader pray Psalms 1-75; Endless Grace leads in prayer through Psalms 76-150.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. Each book contains 75 prayers drawn from the Book of Psalms, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning there. 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.

These artful, poetic, and classic devotional books are a perfect gift, and feature compelling stunning illustrations and hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms. Co-written with Ryan Whitaker Smith, Brazos Publishing.
