Item Description...
Every commentary on the Book of Psalms has had to face the issue that many of these prayers commemorate and celebrate wrath and vengeance. What is needed is not ingenious exegetical rationalization of ancient texts, but the kind of transformation into a work of piety and art that is provided here.Addressed are the needs of a world seeking to counter individual and societal injustices by a global peace born of personal peace through prayer and practice. In short, here is the Book of Psalms recast in the light of the continuing revelation and evolution of the authentic religious spirit of the scriptures.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Spiritually uplifting  May 3, 2008
This rather loose translation of the psalms makes for a beautiful expression if you are looking for something moving, musical and prayerful. Give it a try if the Psalms are part of your spirituality and also if you don't mind venturing from the usual translations we've been used to for years.
 
Psalms for sunny days  Jan 23, 2008
Psalms for sunny days, for New-age Buddhists.
Wipe out those that hate me" phrases in the traditional translations of the Psalms. Get with it. Be happy.

Another this site reviewer wrote, "Since I bought this book, its beautiful, inclusive language and non-sexist image-names for God ....its interpretation of "enemies" as my own fears....." I am glad she found help in this book during a terrible time in her life.

But when the worst happens - and it has and will again - I need the hard edge psalms to know that a human poet, writing thousands of years ago experienced the same pain, fear, and rage that I do yet came through it.

A pleasant enough devotional - but not the whole story.
 
very pleased  Jan 13, 2008
The book was shipped to me very quickly, and was in beautiful, like new condition.
 
A little misleading.  Jan 7, 2008
This book is just the Psalms of the Bible. I thought it might give you a little more than that based on how much people loved it. Don't be misled. It is just a book of the Psalms. Which are still awesome...
 
My constant companion  Jan 7, 2008
I was told of this rewording of the Psalms when I expressed distress about the violent "Slay my enemies", Wipe out those that hate me" phrases in the traditional translations of the Psalms. Since I bought this book nine years ago its beautiful, inclusive language and non-sexist image-names for God, it interpretation of "enemies" as our own fears, it's focus on "going into the silence" has brought me through a year of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation for breast cancer, has provided just-right quotes for classes in spiritual formation that I lead, and has drawn me into the Psalms as no other translation or rewording has done. I've bought probably 100 paperback copies that I have given away.
