The book of Psalms, throughout history, has formed the foundation of prayer liturgy for the great western religions of Judaism and Christianity. Perhaps this is because most of the books of the Bible, our Creator speaks to us, whereas in Psalms, we speak to him.
The psalmists of old were men and women who experienced the joys, fears, anxieties, and tragedies of human experience. Somehow, no matter the challenge, they were able to find equilibrium through a connection with the Divine.
In "The Lord is My Shepherd-Why Do I Still Want?". Rabbi Paul Plotkin captures the voices of the psalmists and amplifies them through stories that will inspire, guide, and comfort modern readers of all religious backgrounds.
