[Read by Ralph Cosham]
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.

'Reflections on the Psalms' was first published in 1958. In this book C S Lewis interprets the psalms on various subjects, such as Judgement, Blessings, Cursing and Praise of the God. He compares the intention of their writers with paganism and modern Christian beliefs with references from both Old Testament and New Testament. This book is not only inspirational but also introduces the readers to the ancient world of the Jews when the Old Testament was written.Product Description:
Lewis writes here about the difficulties he has met or the joys he has gained in reading the Psalms. He points out that the Psalms are poems, intended to be sung, not doctrinal treatises or sermons. Proceeding with his characteristic grace, he guides readers through both the form and the meaning of these beloved passages in the Bible.
