The Gift of Psalms

Review – “The Gift of Psalms”

My most recent review was on “Word of Promise – The Gift of Psalms”. This book, put out by Thomas Nelson, is a great study book, and a good supplement for one’s daily Bible reading. Contained in the book are 50 of the best loved psalms, followed by a one-page devotional on the opposing page that ties in with the psalm text, not dissimilar to the “Our Daily Bread” devotional booklets. Inside the book, Lori Jones gives great insight into the meanings and messages behind the psalms. As an extra addition to this 101 page book, the “Word of Promise” Dramatic Audio Theater presentations are included on three discs, with well-known actors reading the text. The term “Dramatic Audio” is slightly misleading…it is not a radio theatre, it is a Dramatic Reading by a wide variety of different people. Artists include well known figures such as Sean Astin, Richard Dreyfuss, Jesse Mccartney, Joan Allen, Marcia Gay Harden, and more. These readings are very well done, and add excitement and passion into the psalms that are read. All in all, this book is an excellent read, and will bring the psalms to life as you have never read…or heard them before.
