The Psalms: you’ve heard them read in church, adapted into worship songs and maybe glanced through them once or twice. But have you ever asked yourself what the message is behind this moving yet enigmatic book? Have you ever let the Psalms truly speak to you, or, to put it more accurately, let God speak to you through them?
In Out of the Depths, singer and song-writer Rick Lee James invites you to do precisely that. Using a unique blend of personal stories, scholarship and pastoral insight, Rick walks you through the Book of Psalms in 10 deep and powerful chapters. He invites you to learn more, feel more and, above all, hear from God through the Psalms more than you ever have before.
Whether you’ve read the Psalms a hundred times or aren’t familiar with them at all, Out of the Depths is a book that will challenge you and help you to look at the Bible’s prayer book, the Book of Psalms, in an entirely new light.

Reviewed by Dinorah Blackman for Readers' Favorite Out of the Depths is a songwriter’s attempt to bring the biblical Psalms to life. As he explores his own existence, not withholding his deepest, sometimes intimate thoughts and ideas, Rick Lee James draws you into a lifestyle of worship and praise. His analysis of each Psalm is profound and it’s only done through the eyes of Jesus and his love for us. Whether they’re talking about social issues, evil, praise, or vengeance, Rick Lee James is quick to point out those Psalms that don’t line up with the teachings of Jesus. He leads the reader into an in-depth understanding that the Old Testament must not be discarded, but studied in the light of the New Testament and what was accomplished on the cross. Rick Lee James shares personal anecdotes about his journey as a Christian song writer and his struggle with self-loathing and lack of confidence, but gives the reader hope as he emphasizes that we’re all beautiful in God’s sight. The love of God comes to life in these pages. Out of the Depths is a very inspirational book about making God a priority in your daily life. A spiritual experience with God has to be relevant and updated. But it also has to be personal. Each individual worshiper needs to discover the beauty and the glory of God personally. Rick James Lee offers the opportunity to draw near to God through exploration of the Psalms. The book offers a historical account on the writers of these songs and poems we have come to love and quote. Using examples that are easy to understand, the author states his point of view regarding free will and personal responsibility. He also touches on the delicate issues that churches in America face today. This book is a must-read for Christians interested in worshiping God at a deeper level.
