"Illuminating and rewarding."Christian Herald
"For the last thirty years of his life no other Christian writer in this country had such
an influence on the general reading public as C. S. Lewis."Times Literary
In one of his most enlightening works, C. S. Lewis shares his ruminations on both the form
and the meaning of selected psalms. In the introduction he explains, "I write for the unlearned
about things in which I am unlearned myself." Consequently, he takes on a tone of thoughtful
collegiality as he writes on one of the Bible's most elusive books.
Characteristically graceful and lucid, Lewis cautions us that the psalms were originally written
as songs that should now be read in the spirit of lyric poetry rather than as doctrinal treatises
or sermons. Drawing from daily life as well as the literary world, Lewis begins to reveal the
mystery that often shrouds the psalms. This book also includes an appendix featuring the full
text of selected psalms and a listing of all the psalms mentioned and discussed.
