Have you seen this?
I was just given a copy of The Gift of the Psalms put out by Thomas Nelson.
It is part of the Word of Promise series and includes a book and three CDs. The CDs contain dramatic readings of 5o Psalms by some of the best voices in today’s entertainment: Michael York, Marcia Gay Harden, Gary Sinise, Jason Alexander, Stacy Keach, more. The readings are rich and with each reading is accompanied by a devotional study which offers context and insight into each Psalm. The book lists the words to each Psalm and devotional. Each day’s reading is followed by a short prayer.
Also included on the CDs are excerpts from The Word of Promise Old Testement Audio Bible. These are read by artists such as, Richard Dreyfuss, Joan Allen, and more. A bonus to be sure! You can listen to an excerpt here: http://www.thomasnelson.com/consumer/product_detail.asp?sku=1418534374
The book itself is beautifully styled in old world elegance. A section in the back labeled notes is handy to jot down a few things that come to as you're listening. This is a great way to start your morning or end your day.
A wonderful gift for those in your life...or for yourself.
