--- The Psalms ---
More than just a collection of praises to God, the songs of the book of Psalms truly speak to the human condition, having arisen out of every phase of life, out of joy and sorrow, out of success and failure. They have been sung throughout the ages, in times of prosperity and times of persecution, war and exile. And still they are read, sung and meditated upon today, by both Jews and Christians around the world.
Here is an opportunity to read the book of Psalms afresh, with an original introduction by David Adam which casts new light on one of the oldest of texts.
--- About David Adam ---
