Item Description...
The publication of the King James version of the Bible, translated between 1603 and 1611, coincided with an extraordinary flowering of English literature and is universally acknowledged as the greatest influence on English-language literature in history. Now, world-class literary writers introduce the books of the King James Bible in a series of beautifully designed, small-format volumes. The introducers' passionate, provocative, and personal engagements with he spirituality and the language of the test make the Bible come alive as a stunning work of literature and remind us of its overwhelming contemporary relevance.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Handy & classic, even if you're buying it for the intro  Jan 30, 2004
Though the title above says "Psalms," actually it's just a selection from the Biblical book by that name. The translation is the King James, which is classic and gorgeous in the literary sense but not so reliable in a scholarly sense. The size is convenient and can easily fit in a glove compartment or or a CD carrying case. But, let's be honest: most of us are only here because Bono of U2 wrote the introduction, aren't we?

The thing I like best about the introduction is the way it shows how someone can personally think over words from the Bible and use them to understand their own profession. Bono writes idiosyncratic musings on King David as the Biblical Elvis, on what worship means, on how music relates to religion, and on why people with shortcomings get included in the Bible. It's unique, and it's more of a personal essay than an introduction. But if you are interested in the spiritual aspect of U2's work, this book (along with Walk On, Race of Angels, and Get Up Off Your Knees) is a must-read.

Nice  May 31, 2002
A very nice size booklet which you can carry with you anywhere; and a very good selection of the Psalms. Also I really like Bono's introduction, I kind of liken him to a modern day St. Paul. The Psalms are so important in reminded us to seek God and HIS will in days of trouble, like today; and really at all times. I think giving these as gifts to friends and family would be a good way to get people to get interested in the Bible.
Bono Sings a New Song  Aug 18, 2001
I'll fess up right here. I love the Bible, and am moved by the Psalms. But I bought this translation just for Bono's forward, and if you've got a few bucks to spare, I'd recommend doing the same. It's easy to dismiss him as an opionated, ego-centric rock star, and lump him with the self-important and empty-headed lugs that are his peers. But anyone who has capacity enough to not only read, but internalize, these ancient, high-minded texts is impressive. And anyone who can give voice to those internalizations, who can take a personal prayer written by a stranger and see himself, see his contemporaries, see his heroes and enemies in his own modern world, has a gift. The man writes more than songs, he examines his soul, and ours as well. If you think the Bible has nothing for you, read Bono's little introduction. You'll change your mind, and have your eyes opened to the possibilities.
Inspirational  Nov 16, 1999
This edition is memorable only because of Bono's introduction. This is not the complete Psalms, only exerpts, which means they may have left out your favorite. (Pslams 140?) That said, the words of a rock star on what these verses mean to him are very revealing, inspirational and worth reading.
