Read full description of the books Reflections on the Psalms:Some of my favorite things about this wonderful little book by my favorite author:
1. Right away, he takes on the difficult, hard-to-stomach psalms, the ones about such things as dashing the Babylonian babies against the stones. Hard stuff. I'm sure I would have avoided it.
2. This quote:
"But of course these conjectures as to why God does what He does are probably of no more value than my dog's ideas of what I am up to when I sit and read."
3. And this quote:
"What we see when we think we are looking into the depths of Scripture may sometimes be only the reflection of our own silly faces."
4. Lewis' discussion of Melchizedek, who I think is the most mysterious figure in the Bible. If you're not familiar with Melchizedek, I urge you to read everything about him in the Bible. It won't take long. He's only mentioned in three places -- Genesis 14, Psalm 110 and Hebrews 7. If your curiosity is piqued, find a copy of "Reflections on the Psalms" and read Chapter 12, "Second Meanings in the Psalms." I think it will be time well-spent.

He was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and been transformed into three major motion pictures.
