Inhaltsangabe: 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 "


In this famous book, C.S. Lewis discusses the Psalms from three perspectives: the Judaism which produced them, the age of Christ when they took on new meanings, and our daily experience in the modern world.

C. S. Lewis introduces these thoughts that came to him while reading the psalms by emphasising their informal nature: ?I write,? he says, ?as one amateur to another, talking about the difficulties I have met, or lights I have gained, with the hope that this might at any rate interest, and sometimes even help, other inexpert readers.? He relates the psalms to their triple background: to the ancient Judaic religion which produced them, to the age of Christ when they took on new meanings, and to our daily experience in the modern world.

Originally published in 1958, this was the first religious book Professor Lewis wrote after an interval of ten years. All who read it will have their insight deepened and widened by the appreciation of the poetic beauty, the psychology and the spirituality displayed in one of the least understood books of the Bible.
