Have any of you read this? Would you please comment on it? I love the psalter but find that oftentimes I don't understand what I'm reading/praying there. Fr. Reardon's book looks as if it might help a lot, especially if the reviews on Amazon are to be believed, but would really appreciate further input about it before I spend the $$. Or...if there's something better, perhaps someone could suggest it? Also, does Fr. Reardon's book cover the whole psalter?
Even Psalm 151. There is a slight difference between the second and first edition-the second he expanded on a psalm or two.
It consists of a few pages (2-4 or so) on each Psalm, more in the vein on a meditation on relating the Psalm to Christ/Christology/the Life in Christ, rather than a textual-historical analysis-but, being Fr. Patrick Henry Reardon, he does that as well.
The only thing I've seen comparable was "the Holy Fathers and the Psalter", which was a LOT costlier IIRC.
Btw, for full disclosure, the author is my priest.
