Reflections on the Psalms | [C.S. Lewis]

Reflections on the Psalms

In one of his most enlightening works, C. S. Lewis shares his ruminations on both the form and the meaning of selected psalms. In the introduction he explains, "I write for the unlearned about things in which I am unlearned myself." Consequently, he takes on a tone of thoughtful collegiality as he writes on one of the Bible's most elusive books.

Publisher's Summary

In one of his most enlightening works, C.S. Lewis shares his ruminations on both the form and the meaning of selected psalms. In the introduction he explains, "I write for the unlearned about things in which I am unlearned myself." Consequently, he takes on a tone of thoughtful collegiality as he writes on one of the Bible's most elusive books.

Characteristically graceful and lucid, Lewis cautions us that the psalms were originally written as songs that should now be read in the spirit of lyric poetry rather than as doctrinal treatises or sermons. Drawing from daily life as well as the literary world, Lewis begins to reveal the mystery that often shrouds the psalms.

    "A CS book unlike no other"

    I would not say this book is CS Lewis' best book. However, it is different than any other CS book I have read. If you are familiar with the Psalms, this book is great to listen to. Otherwise, you would have to pause the book and reference the verses and flip from chapter to chapter to follow its contents. The book is an overview of the Psalms. CS Lewis takes various themes(worship, judgment, sacrifice, joy...) and traces them throughout the 150 chapters of Psalms.
    Though CS Lewis has a great mind, this book comes accross as having a devotional flavor, which is neat to hear. CS Lewis does not hit you with his intellect and logic as much as his other books, but in a candid manner. It is like sitting down with a brother in Christ over a cup of coffee and talking about God's Word.

    "Great Book!"

    I enjoyed listening to this book. The reader made me think I was listening to C S Lewis himself. The only thing I didn't like was that this is the kind of book I like to underline in and make notes to myself. So I will probably go out and buy it. I would definitely recommend this book.

    "Disapointed"

    This ended up being my least favorite of C.S Lewis books. Some parts were interesting though, its not like a waste of time.

    "Reflective"
    Would you listen to Reflections on the Psalms again? Why?

    Yes. Lots to think about.


    What didn’t you like about Ralph Cosham’s performance?

    His voice comes across as very harsh, which makes the whole thing less easy to listen too.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Great book, lots of worthwhile stuff. Just a shame this reader isn't too my taste
