Overview

"Songs for the Spirit, Robert L. Giron's translation of the psalms, is both refreshing to the soul and beautifully crafted. Gone is the sexist language of these ancient prayers, and mercifully gone also is the violence that too often mars their beauty in their original language. Giron has done a service to all who have reverenced the psalms but have avoided them over the years because of their dated language. This new translation will be welcomed not only by religious communities who pray the psalms in common, but also by individuals who have had to pick their way through the psalms, selecting for spiritual comfort only those psalms that speak to a modern sensibility. Readers today can now experience the reverence and joy expressed through Giron's newly edited translation of all the psalms."
—George Klawitter, CSC, Professor of English, St. Edward's University
