Product Excerpts and Related Resources


"Pause is structured as a once-weekly devotional, yet there’s enough rich content to enjoy throughout the week, making it a forgiving choice for those with busy schedules who prefer to read on their own. However, it’s the leader’s guide that makes this an ideal choice for small groups – it’s user-friendly, includes a 'pause' (spiritual practice), and additional activities and discussion questions that will draw participants back week after week." – Presbyterian Outlook

“While Elizabeth Caldwell has done all the research and provides guidance for individuals as well as lesson plans for groups, her invitation is open and gentle, compelling, not burdensome. She invites us to join the long line of pilgrims who have turned to the Psalms to find their way into God’s presence. She is a trustworthy leader for a Lenten pilgrimage that will change your life.” —Laura Mendenhall, President Emerita, Columbia Theological Seminary

“From time to time, the Holy Spirit helps me see something in a new way. In this beautiful, thoughtful book, Caldwell helps me see the season of Lent and the Psalms anew. With wisdom and grace, she invites us to open our eyes and tend to our hearts and pause so that God may do what God does best—draw us near and make us more faithful. I am deeply grateful.” —Rodger Y. Nishioka, Senior Pastor, Village Presbyterian Church, Prairie Village, Kansas

“Elizabeth Caldwell’s small, soulful volume is like a prism through which the gentle and passionate light of God reflects through selected psalms. Each chapter invites readers to pause and linger with the ancient words, through a variety of translations and paraphrases, in order that the words can help us uncover layer after layer of personal meaning. Like a relationship that ripens with time, Caldwell’s pastoral heart and invitational style gives us a trustworthy companion for our Lenten journeys. Pausing in this way is indeed, as the author states, countercultural. It is also a gift. This book is one I will return to year after year.” —Eugenia Anne Gamble, Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) pastor and author of Words of Love: A Healing Journey with the Ten Commandments
