"The Gift of Psalms" Review

Experience beloved Scripture passages as read by the world’s finest talents!

The Psalms, more than any other book in all of Scripture, give voice to the human experience of God. The Gift of Psalms book beautifully presents excerpts from 50 of the best-loved Psalms with stirring devotions to inspire you and connect you more deeply with God.

Three CDs include 30 spoken Psalms from The Word of Promise™ Old Testament Audio Bible, enhanced by a fully orchestrated music score and devotional content, read by the world’s finest talent, including: Jason Alexander, Joan Allen, Sean Astin, Richard Dreyfuss, Harry Hamlin, Marcia Gay Harden, Stacy Keach, Jesse McCartney, Malcolm McDowell, Gary Sinise, and Michael York.


Here is a book that is both beautiful and uplifting. It is elegant enough to sit on a coffee table but enriching enough that it should be on a bedside table so it can be read often. Each page has a favorite Psalm along with a devotional type reading to go along with it. I have found the readings to be very insightful and satisfying. To top off the beauty of the book, it includes 3 cds with the Psalms being read by some amazing actors and actresses with a music score that is wonderful. The cds could be kept in the car to lift you up as you drive around town, but I like to play mine while I'm on the computer.

This is an impressive book and cd set that would be enjoyed by just about anyone - I highly recommend this uplifting work of art!
