Synopses & Reviews
The Book of Psalms holds a special place in the canon of Western religion. It is perhaps, the most beautiful, and most quoted book on the Bible -- an uplifting work of poetry as well as prayer.
Now in this special Riverhead edition, Kathleen Norris, the author of The Cloister Walk, guides the modern reader through the Book of Psalms with astonishing clarity and insight. She makes us see anew how this ancient book of praise -- songs of anger as well as comfort -- are as relevant today as they ever were.
