Psalms for People Under Pressure
When Jonathan Aitken was in prison, he experienced a religious conversion. When he emerged into the light of day, he headed for Oxford where he read for and obtained a degree in theology. The Psalms have assumed a quite exceptional importance in his life. The Psalms are at the very heart of the Christian life and its liturgy - in them is found the whole range of human emotion, of triumph and despair.
In this book, Aitken expounds his own view of the Psalms, the fruit of much prayer, study and reflection. Aitken writes 'out of the depths': he has experienced as profoundly as any of us the heights of adulation and the depths of disgrace and shame and he understands the meaning of repentance.
This is an account of the Psalms tried and tested in raw human emotion. This book is designed to be kept in the top drawer of a businessman's desk or the satchel of a student.
