Publisher's Summary

The Book of Psalms is a book in both the Hebrew and Christian Bibles consisting of 150 poems originally written to be chanted or sung and accompanied by musical instruments. In fact, the word "psalm" comes from the Greek word "psalmoi", meaning "songs sung to a harp". In content they express virtually the entire range of the Jewish religious experience and faith.
The Psalms are thought to have been written in the first millennium before Christ, perhaps earlier. Although many of the Psalms are attributed to David, doubts persist. Whoever the authors may have been, the collected poems are a powerful testimony to the faith of the Jewish people. They weave a spell of spiritual longing and hope that endures to the present day among people of many faiths.

Who can fault the Psalms!?

The Psalms are some of the greatest literature ever written. God is good! And this narrator is the best. It's like having a conversation with a friend. Enjoy!

A spectacular voice for a timeless work

A true gem of audio production. Griffin supasses Scourby on this one. I really wish Griffin would perform the New Testament someday. As the most read book in history, it would be an enduring audio classic.
