The ancient words of the Psalms have been spoken, prayed, and sung throughout the ages, offering expression for the deepest longings and triumphs of the human soul. Those verses now come alive with the passion and energy of Scripture, paraphrased with the contemporary language of The Message.
The ancient hymns, poems, and prayers found in the Psalms teach us how to communicate with God. As Eugene Peterson writes, this book gives us a language adequate for responding to the God who speaks to us.
Translated directly from the original Hebrew, the Psalms come alive in the heart-stirring words of The Message.
