Reader’s Choice

Reflections on the Psalms
C.S. Lewis

C.S. Lewis, writer of the “Chronicles of Narnia,” a work of fiction, also wrote extensively on spirituality. In “Reflections on the Psalms,” Lewis takes an enlightened approach to the psalms, likening them to a poem. He approaches the psalms as a fellow learner, writing it to, as he describes it, interest and help “inexpert readers.” The book provides nourishment to those new to the psalms as well as those well-versed. Lewis divides the book into several chapters which, arguably, could stand alone. Examples of chapter themes are “Nature” and “Selected Meanings.” There are also selected psalms at the end, to enrich the mind and soul. Other books that C.S. Lewis has written are “Surprised by Joy” and “The Four Loves.”
