How can the wildness of Highland Scotland give voice to the words of the Psalms? That's a question that is ever present in Landscapes of Grace.
Exploring this, we hear the Psalms enfolded and wrapped in the colours and contours of Highland Scotland. Crags, lochs, rivers, and moors enhance the stories, prayers, and poetry of this book and we hear afresh the words of the Psalms as if to ourselves.
Are there not times when we stop and rest awhile and gaze on the natural beauty of our world? It is often on these days we are quietened by a deep wonder of God and a longing for His presence.
Hearing the voice of the Psalms we awake to the surprise of God's grace and the hope this brings.
