Key life themes lie in these ancient songs of worship at the very heart of Old Covenant experience, belief and ritual. Exploring them, we find them unlocked through an intimate relationship with our Saviour and King, Firstborn Son of our Heavenly Papa God, as revealed to us by Holy Spirit.
Here, unashamedly viewed through faith and trust in Mighty King Jesus, Mashiach, the Anointed One, is pain, hurt and grief, side by side with faith and hope, with fire, passion and love, thanks, praise and worship.
As you put your trust, hope and faith in Him, may you find here your heart’s cries to our High King of Heaven and Earth.

I'm happy to say that I found Jim's book to be an insightful and very pleasant reminder about the love of God. The cover, full of sunset-esque hues, sets the tone for the reading of the book. It is not hard to take notice that the author really spent some time on making sure his true thoughts and feelings were evident in each of the Psalms. Psalms, along with Romans, is my favorite book of the Bible and I found Jim's writing style to be fairly clear, (a few parts might be a tad intense for new believers) and encouraging. I love the size of the text because it made for smooth, quick and easy reading and I believe it is a wonderful book for lovers of Jesus everywhere. Overall, 'Living & Breathing the Psalms' earns a 4-star rating from me.

I'm so glad Cierra likes it, though I would love to know what I could improve to gain a full 5 stars. Some of the Psalms may be a little 'intense' but is there more intense literature anywhere than the Psalms? If I've captured something of that intensity of human life and feeling into our contemporary language - then I'm happy.
