Lewis, in this enlightening work, shares his ruminations on selected Psalms, and takes on a tone of thoughtful collegiality as he weaves a tapestry of undeniable symbollism and significance. He includes in this work the Psalms he references, and simply but lucidly denotes special characteristics of the selected literature. He expresses the method by which the Psalms speak to us today, and invokes the reader to thoughts as well as feelings produced by the Psalms, and reveals the divine quality in them which lifts our hearts as well as our spirits.

While Lewis does not claim to be a scholar in relation to the Psalms, any lover of poetic literature with a keen sense of humanity would think otherwise. Lewis' rational view of the Psalms and the Psalmists give revelational insight into the hearts of God and man. Definately worth reading.
