Description: For more than two thousand years, Christians have sung, chanted, and prayed the psalms, a practice of worship inherited from our Jewish ancestors in faith. In this book scripture scholar, John Bergsma, introduces us to King David, the story of Israel, and the salvation of the Jewish people through the coming of Jesus. Bergsma highlights the presence of Jesus in the psalms and helps us understand their meaning in light of the story of salvation. He employs a conversational style together with simple illustrations to help bridge the gap between the world of contemporary Catholics and the ancient world of the Bible.

Whether prayed during Mass, the Liturgy of the Hours, or in personal reflection, these ancient hymns continue to be a guiding light for Catholics. Yet rarely do we step back and look at how the psalms fit into the story of salvation revealed in the Bible the way Bergsma does here. Bergsma's insightful, practical examination of the psalms helps Catholics see how their promise is fulfilled in Christ.

Bergsma employs a conversational style together with simple illustrations to help bridge the gap between the world of contemporary Catholics and the ancient world of the Bible.
