This volume of the Navarre Bible commentaries sheds light on the simple beauty of the Psalms and Song of Solomon (Song of Songs). The Catechism teaches that the Psalms, “whether hymns or prayers of lamentation or thanksgiving, whether individual or communal, whether royal chants, songs of pilgrimage or wisdom-meditations…are a mirror of God’s marvelous deeds in the history of his people, as well as reflections of the human experiences of the Psalmist.”
Even though they often reflect events of the past, the Psalms still possess such direct simplicity and depth that they can be prayed sincerely in all times and conditions. This edition with its illuminating commentary will help make these prayers an important part of your life.
This sturdy hardcover contains the complete Latin and English texts of each book; commentary based on the writings of the great saints and doctors of the Church; and material on each book’s historical and Biblical context.
