    Download Reflections on the Psalms Book Ü Paperback Æ Srlltd Reflections on the PsalmsCS Lewis begins this work by comparing it to two school boys studying together because they understand the same sort of uestions that have long since ceased to puzzle and in fact become incomprehensible to their schoolmaster The analogy works beautifully for this book I particularly enjoyed his analysis of how the Christian should approach portions of the Psalms where the psalmist proclaims his innocence and demands retribution It seems to counter the very tenants of Christianity in some ways And yet it is a part of the Bible and the very words echo something recognizable inside us I think some Christians understandably tend to look askance on this volume because Lewis does approach uestions of the purpose of Scripture and the beginning of the world with language we often attribute to looser liberal theologians I do not intend to offer any deeper apologetic to his analysis But whether I agree with his solutions or not I appreciate that Lewis a school boy like myself is

I kept hoping I would find one chapter in this book to embrace but the entire volume turned out to be reflections of a C S Lewis I had not anticipated To his credit Lewis introduces the book by stating that he is no scholar no Hebraist he also says no higher critic but that I take as a technicality since he certainly employs higher critical reasoning throughout but rather one unlearned writing for the unlearned Of course the fa
