Product Description

Lewis's most extended discussion of Scripture! He wants his readers to admire the Psalms as great works of poetry, so he explains how parallelism works. He also stresses the importance of the Psalms in singing and worship, how they provide words for our prayers and display an obvious "gusto" for God. 151 pages, softcover. Harcourt Brace.

Publisher's Description

“We delight to praise what we enjoy because the praise not merely expresses but completes the enjoyment; it is its appointed consummation.”

The Psalms were written as songs; we should read them as poetry, in the spirit of lyric, not as sermons or instructions. But they are also shrouded in mystery, and in this careful reading from one of our most trusted fellow travelers, C.S. Lewis helps us begin to reveal their meaning in our daily lives and in the world. Reflecting again and anew on these beloved passages, we can find both joy and difficulty, but also, always, real enlightenment and moments of transcendent grace.

"This book may not tell the reader all he would like to know about the Psalms, but it will tell him a good deal he will not like to know about himself." —Times Literary Supplement

"[Lewis] . . . displays in this volume the same keen insight and gifted tongue that have made him one of the most highly respected essayists using the English language." —Chicago Sunday Tribune

"Full of illuminating observations." —New York Times

    C.S. Lewis indeed tells of the wonderful poetry that is the Psalms. He also describes it as if he is a Biblical scholar. Lewis, in the reviewer's eyes, was an everyman; a person that had many talents.
