Overview

Reflections on the Psalms by C. S. Lewis

A repackaged edition of the revered author’s moving theological work in which he considers the most poetic portions from Scripture and what they tell us about God, the Bible, and faith.

In this wise and enlightening book, C. S. Lewis—the great British writer, scholar, lay theologian, broadcaster, Christian apologist, and bestselling author of Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce, The Chronicles of Narnia, and many other beloved classics—examines the Psalms. As Lewis divines the meaning behind these timeless poetic verses, he makes clear their significance in our daily lives, and reminds us of their power to illuminate moments of grace.

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.

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.
