The 150 psalms of the Bible are the oldest collection of prayers in western civilization. In A Child's Book of Psalms, young readers will discover the beauty and power of the psalms anew—and make these ancient prayers their own.
A Child's Book of Psalms presents selections from 22 of the best-loved psalms of the Bible. Each psalm is brought to life with a two page color illustration, featuring scenes and styles from Biblical times. The text is attractively typeset, and the beauty and dignity of traditional language is preserved.
Children will learn the history, background and types of Psalms in three supplemental chapters by noted author Amy Welborn. A map and visual timeline of Israel from Abraham to Solomon reveals the Biblical events that animate these great prayers.
For three thousand years, the faithful have been nourished by “the Bible’s Prayer Book” — the psalms. With A Child's Book of Psalms, even the youngest readers can share in these riches too.
