Washington (Vocus/PRWEB) January 22, 2011
The Book of Psalms is one of the most well-known and beautifully written books of the Bible. Many people turn to it for its words of wisdom, advice or observations. Healing Psalms (published by CrossBooks), the new book by Rabbi Joshua Haberman, acts as an accompaniment to the best selling book of all time.
Healing Psalms is a commentary to the 150 psalms, and was created to help the reader cope with the problems of everyday life, ranging from specific problems to feelings of love, grief, happiness or depression. Also included is an index which guides readers to the appropriate psalm that relates to their current situation.
Haberman’s book will appeal to readers because of its clarity in explaining the sometimes complex passages of the Book of Psalms. He also develops interesting topics for reflection on the challenges and problems of daily living while encouraging belief in a personal God.
Friendly and easy to comprehend, Healing Psalms will appeal to both the casual reader and Bible class leaders alike because of its conveyance of the Psalms as a current and relevant collection of writings to problems and challenges of the human condition.
