The Psalms Within Us: Sacred Reflections from one of the Most Loved Books of the Bible (Volume 1) by L. Starling is an artistic view of inspiration, taken from the Book of Psalms found in the Bible. The author has added eye-catching fonts and creative illustrations to bring the psalms to life.
The Book of Psalms is one of the more intimate writings in the Bible. These declarations and prayers touch on every aspect of life. I'm an avid Bible reader so any book centered on or declaring biblical knowledge quickly catches my interest. Having read through the Book of Psalms, I found this presentation quite unique. The uniqueness had nothing to do with the psalms themselves, but rather the presentation. If someone were to take a porterhouse steak with all the trimmings, vegetables of choice included, and place it on a garbage can lid, I'm sure it would be passed up. The problem isn't the food but the presentation. In comparison, this author has taken a wonderful spiritual meal and prepared it in such a way that no one would refuse to dine.
I thoroughly loved the illustrations and found myself looking for angelic images within the design. The entire projects works well. If I saw this book in the store, I would surely purchase it. I recommend it to everyone who loves the Bible and to anyone who loves positive biblical readings. Even if he or she isn't a Bible-reader, the illustrations within the book will touch their spirit in a profound way and compel them to read a little further.
