Shares that the Psalms are a powerful prayer for all Christians


I wrote these reflections for my own spiritual understanding

Richard Strawn’s new book Surgical Psalms ($10.99, paperback, 9781498499613; $5.99, eBook, 9781498499620    ) shares that during the time of a cancer diagnosis, surgery and recovery, the Psalms provided encouragement and hope, as well as reminding Strawn of God's love, and all the many ways God shows love to those who are sick.
Surgical Psalms contains 36 reflections about the author’s experiences of diagnosis and surgical recovery from colon cancer. These reflections seek spiritual dimensions of his situation. The author drew from the Psalms to reflect on various aspects of this experience.

Strawn says, “I wrote these reflections for my own spiritual understanding, to think about and respect the path of life and death. These are issues, experiences and paths which other people deal with; perhaps my reflections might assist others in finding and following their spiritual path.”

Richard Strawn is a cancer survivor and believes in the spiritual guidance of the Psalms. Through all of the emotions of his situation, fear and gratitude and discouragement and weariness, God was always present.

Xulon Press, a division of Salem Media Group, is the world’s largest Christian self-publisher, with more than 12,000 titles published to date. Retailers may order Surgical Psalms through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors. The book is available online through xulonpress.com/bookstore, amazon.com, and barnesandnoble.com.
