Bibles & Psalms

The Bible (from Koine Greek τὰ βιβλία ta biblia "the books") is any one of the collections of the primary religious texts of Judaism and Christianity. There is no common version of the Bible, as the contents and the order of the individual books (Biblical canon) vary among denominations. The 24 texts of the Hebrew Bible are divided into 39 books in Christian Old Testaments, and complete Christian Bibles range from the 66 books of the Protestant canon to the 81 books of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church Bible. The Hebrew and Christian Bibles are also important to other Abrahamic religions, including Islam and the Bahá'í Faith, but those religions do not regard them as central religious texts.
 

The Book of Psalms, commonly referred to simply as Psalms or "the Psalms", is the first book of the Ketuvim ("Writings"), the third section of the Hebrew Bible, and thus a book of the Christian Old Testament.  The title is derived from the Greek translation, ψαλμοί, psalmoi, meaning "instrumental music" and, by extension, "the words accompanying the music".  The book is an anthology of individual psalms, with 150 in the Jewish and Western Christian tradition and more in the Eastern Christian churches.  Many are linked to the name of David, but his authorship is not accepted by modern scholars.

We offer a collection of books from our range below but can obtain many other titles if there is something in particular that you seek, please contact us.

The Book of Psalms - Paperback

The psalter is the prayer book of Israel, the treasury of Israel’s hopes and fears, successes and failures, loves and hates. For centuries they have provided the material for monastic and priestly prayer, and in every age have been used to express the prayers of Christians in moments of crisis or joy. A psalm is always used to provide the response to the First Reading at Mass. Since the revival of the use of the Liturgy of the Hours the psalter has again become increasingly important as a vehicle and expression of worship.The Psalms are introduced by Henry Wansbrough OSB who also gives practical guidance for personal reading and reflection. The Grail translation is used in the Prayer of the Church and the Catholic liturgy.
