9780006205050: Reflections on the Psalms

In this famous book, C.S. Lewis discusses the Psalms from three perspectives: the Judaism which produced them, the age of Christ when they took on new meanings, and our daily experience in the modern world.

C. S. Lewis introduces these thoughts that came to him while reading the psalms by emphasising their informal nature: ‘I write,’ he says, ‘as one amateur to another, talking about the difficulties I have met, or lights I have gained, with the hope that this might at any rate interest, and sometimes even help, other inexpert readers.’ He relates the psalms to their triple background: to the ancient Judaic religion which produced them, to the age of Christ when they took on new meanings, and to our daily experience in the modern world.

Originally published in 1958, this was the first religious book Professor Lewis wrote after an interval of ten years. All who read it will have their insight deepened and widened by the appreciation of the poetic beauty, the psychology and the spirituality displayed in one of the least understood books of the Bible.
