"Psalms" are song lyrics, the poetry of the soul. Written around 2500-3500 years ago, they are part of our history, our consciousness. This selection of a dozen trans-created "Psalms", taking its inspiration from rap and country and western, brings the intent of the writers into the poetry and language of today. They recount what it feels like to have complete trust in God, to be utterly yourself, as a raw and hurting human being, and how God makes you feel when you enter his presence. This is a book to read again and again. It's for when you're in a state of change, when you're suffering, for the middle of the night. For when you've been left, and when you've been found. For when you reach the end or are trying to summon up the energy for another beginning. For anyone who is looking for God and is prepared to explore beyond the walls placed around Him by the religious institutions. A book about what it is to be human under the glare of the Divine.
