I present here a new perspective on the psalms. I have rewritten them from a New Testament point of view. I did not try to capture the poetry of the psalms – I leave that to more gifted writers – but I attempted to capture their message with a more modern interpretation. May this presentation of the psalms serve to draw you and me closer to God.
