"Lewis's words appear often in my Mitford series---where would the Christian thinker be without Lewis? He is pivotal."--Jan Karon"Illuminating and rewarding reading."--"Christian Herald" In one of his most enlightening works, C.S. Lewis shares his ruminations on both the form and the meaning of selected Psalms. In the introduction he explains, "I write for the unlearned about things in which I am unlearned myself," so from neither a scholar's nor an apologist's stance, Lewis takes on a tone of thoughtful collegiality as he writes on one of the Bible's most elusive books. Characteristically graceful and lucid, Lewis cautions that the Psalms were originally written as songs that should now be read in the spirit of lyric poetry rather than as doctrinal treatises or sermons. Drawing from daily life as well as the literary world, Lewis begins to reveal the mystery that often shrouds the Psalms. This book also includes an appendix featuring the full text of selected Psalms and a listing of all the Psalms mentioned and discussed. "For the last thirty years of his life no other Christian writer in this country had such an influence on the general reading public as C.S. Lewis."--"The Times Literary Supplement" (London) C. S. Lewis (1898-1963) gained international renown for an impressive array of beloved works both popular and scholarly: literary criticism, children's literature, fantasy literature, and numerous books on theology. Among his most celebrated achievements are "Out of the Silent Planet, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Screwtape Letters, The Four Loves, " and "Surprised by Joy."
