“We delight to praise what we enjoy because the praise not merely expresses but completes the enjoyment; it is its appointed consummation.” The Psalms were written as songs; we should read them as poetry, in the spirit of lyric, not as sermons or instructions. But they are also shrouded in mystery, and in this careful reading from one of our most trusted fellow travelers, C.S. Lewis helps us begin to reveal their meaning in our daily lives and in the world. Reflecting again and anew on these beloved passages, we can find both joy and difficulty, but also, always, real enlightenment and moments of transcendent grace. "This book may not tell the reader all he would like to know about the Psalms, but it will tell him a good deal he will not like to know about himself." —Times Literary Supplement "[Lewis] . . . displays in this volume the same keen insight and gifted tongue that have made him one of the most highly respected essayists using the English language." —Chicago Sunday Tribune "Full of illuminating observations." —New York Times

The Psalms are often viewed as ancient poems with little relevance in today's society. They can be difficult to read, obscure in their imagery, and even cruel and violent in their messages. In this book, the author takes one or more verses from each of the Psalms and relates their sentiments to experiences in our everyday lives. The Psalms are not about some ancient poet in a remote desert nation. The author believes they are about us. This book aims to give readers the chance to confront those evils within their own life and to reflect upon the sacredness of their everyday existence. Capozzi shows the mesage of the Psalms for our ordinary experiences and argues that God is not "out there" somewhere, but right here in everyday life. This work is aimed at people willing to explore these conflicts in their own hearts. Each reflection is confined to a single page and ends with a question - allowing the reader to reflect upon his or her own similar experiences. The reflection may be used as a daily meditation.

"The Sheep of His Hand" is a walk through the Psalms alongside a little band of sheep. Sheep are individuals, and benefit from individualized care. Shepherds have always dealt with primal concerns--birth, death, love, rejection. Technology has changed much in the last millennium but the mud and the blood of shepherding are timeless--and sheep are still sheep. Sharing this ancient occupation with the Psalmist helped Suzanne Tietjen to understand what David had to say about walking with God. "This book is amazing! I not only learned more about sheep than I ever knew, I learned something about The Shepherd, too." Bob Hartman performance storyteller and author, "The Lion Storyteller Bible" "Brilliant . . . This highly original book breathes fresh life into an old metaphor. It deserves to be read by millions." Dr. Mark Stibbe The Father's House Trust "Beautifully written, refreshingly funny, and spiritually profound. This is the kind of book that sticks with you. Buy it. Read it. Share it with a friend." Dr. Bill Giovannetti author, "How to Keep Your Inner Mess from Trashing Your Outer World" "The escapades and tragedies of Suzanne's little woolly sheep touched my heart." Karen H. Whiting author, "God's Girls" Watch the book trailer in the Kregel.com video library - www.kregel.com/video
