Few of us know very much about the Book of Psalms, even though it is read at every mass, prayed daily in every convent and monastery throughout the world, and quoted in the New Testament more than any other biblical book.
In this CD set, Dr. Bergsma introduces us to the Psalms, answering these and many other questions:
• Why are the Psalms the only book from which we read or sing at every Mass?
• What’s the connection between the Psalms and the Eucharistic Sacrifice?
• How do the Psalms speak to us about Jesus?
• How are the Psalms a “summary of all Scripture”?
• Why are the Psalms important for spiritual warfare?
• How do we handle those harsh Psalms that call down curses on people?
Listen and discover why, next to the Gospels, the Psalms have been the saints’ most-loved book of the Bible!
I read Dr. Bergsma's Psalm Basics for Catholics and loved it, but this goes beyond the book. He shows in a marvelous way how the book of the Psalms encapsulates the history of Israel, and is prophecy of the life of Jesus. Especially interesting are the in-depth studies of the some of the psalms. Makes me appreciate and love the psalms even more. Highly recommended!
I purchased both the CD and the book on the Psalms (Psalm Basics for Catholics) and have gotten so much from them both. Great job by Dr. Bergsma, as usual. I really like his fill-in-the-blanks outlines...a good way to reinforce and really learn the lesson!
Excellent presentation. We really liked this CD so much that we are listening to it again to take in what we missed the first time. Very helpful in understanding the Book of Revelation - amazing discoveries. God bless Dr Brant Pitre in his ministry.

Love the way Dr. Bergstra explains the spirituality and historical references behind the words of the individual psalmist(s) Using it as a Lenten exercise tool.
