Rabbi Daniel Polish

Here, the most beloved -- and least understood -- of the books in the Bible comes alive. Polish invites us into the beauty and meaning of these ancient "prayer poems," which show that we are not alone in our problems, and help us find comfort in a reality greater than ourselves.

Simultaneously insightful and practical, this book shows how psalms address a
myriad of spiritual issues in our lives: feeling abandoned, overcoming physical illness, dealing with anger, giving thanks. A comprehensive overview of the texts and traditions surrounding the Psalms enhances our understanding as contemporary readers. Bringing the Psalms to Life

   * Shows us how we can draw from the psalms’ power and helps us to understand and appreciate why that power speaks to all of us.

   * Teaches us how to read the psalms by walking us through them step by step, pointing out their features, their contexts, their quirks, and their meanings, so that we can understand them more deeply.

   * Guides us in how to actually use the psalms when we need help in our lives help in dealing with anger, facing the "enemies" in our life, coping with feeling abandoned, dealing with sickness, expressing our thanks, and more.
