Publisher's Summary

Psalm 5:3 says: At each and every sunrise you will hear my voice as I prepare my sacrifice of prayer to you. Every morning I lay out the pieces of my life on the altar and wait for your fire to fall upon my heart.

Every emotion of our hearts is reflected in the Psalms with words that express our deepest and strongest feelings. Sighing is turned to singing and trouble into triumph. The Psalms provide comfort and joy, leading us to the place where worship flows. When discouraged or downcast, we can take new strength from reading them. They charge our batteries and fill our sails. Their thunder stirs us, and sweet melodies move us into the sacred emotions of a heart on fire. Dark rain clouds of grief turn to bright rainbows of hope as we meditate on David's soul subduing songs. The Psalms are clearly poetic. They are praises placed inside poetry that spill out of a fiery passionate heart. The Psalms free us to become emotional, passionate, sincere worshippers. These 150 poetic masterpieces give us an expression of faith and worship. They become a mirror to the heart of Gods people in our quest to experience His presence.

    "excellent"

    loved listening to this version of the Psalms as it really amplified the heart of Our Lord God Almighty and that through prayer God does hear the prayers of those who believe on him and comes to their rescue.

    "Inspiring"

    Great reading of the psalms with sensitive music. Dropped a star as the chapters don't line up with the psalm chapters, they run on behind, otherwise perfect

    The presentation of love emotion in some of the verses, and the simplicity of language

    My favorites Psalms 23, 91 etc sound amazingly poetic.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    This here is amazing. I cannot wait to get the Songs of Solomon

    "Awesome"

    I know "awesome" is an over used word today but Poetry on Fire draws one closer to God and the imagery leaves you in awe of Him. I love The Passion Translation for this reason and recommend to anyone as a must read.
