THE GIFT OF PSALMS

The Gift of Psalms - Devotional Wisdom from 50 of the Best Loved Psalms is a wonderful collection of Biblical poetry and applicable wisdom. Each devotional contains a psalm and accompanying explanation by Lori Jones. Jones also concludes each section with a heart-felt prayer.

Also included are three CDs with 30 of the psalms and devotionals narrated by famous actors, including the voices of Gary Sinise, Richard Dreyfuss, Jason Alexander, and Sean Astin.

This devotional set is designed as a simple daily devotional that aims to help the reader discover new insight into these beloved Psalms. Although it will not take the place of a deep quiet time, it does provide spiritual truth.

Especially for Christians who have read many of these Psalms time and time again, a different perspective can provide a breath of fresh air. Also, hearing the Word instead of reading the familiar passages can emphasize truth often overlooked. The CDs offer commuters the ability to spend time in the Word during travel and families a devotional to listen to after dinner.

Although there are numerous audio Bibles and collections available, The Gift of Psalms offers a nice collection for those who are looking for greater insight into how David’s poetry is applicable today.
