Item description for The Psalms: An Artist's Impression by Eugene H. Peterson & Anneke Kaai...

In every generation, the book of Psalms has inspired artists and musicians, and comforted and thrilled ordinary readers. These ancient poems seem to be timeless--with amazing insight and accuracy they express the wide range of human emotions often experienced in secret, of hurts and baffling doubts, of deep joys and soaring hope.This book combines the talents of two artists, from different continents and cultural contexts, who express their personal encounters with the words of the Psalms. Using vibrant acrylics on Plexiglas, the Dutch artist Anneke Kaai applies paintbrush and collage techniques to give "body" to her experience of the Psalms; the verses that inspired her paintings appear alongside, taken from The Message by Eugene Peterson. Peterson's paraphrase, widely embraced by readers in his home country (United States) and around the world, is a moving manifestation of the cutting reality, emotional intensity and colloquial vibrancy of the ancient Hebrew poetry.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Psalms: An Artist's Impression?

Abstract Symbolism Meets the Psalms  Jan 16, 2001
I have been looking all over for works that depict biblical themes through modern art. Anneke Kaai takes Psalms that we are all familiar with and puts a refreshing spin on them. The medium, oils and acrylics on plexiglass, is incredibly unique and beautiful. She captures the emotion of the Psalms in her use of color and contrasting lights and darks. Coupled with passages from Eugene H. Peterson's "The Message," the Psalms spring to life in this book, letting modern audiences identify with timeless Truth and a very good God. :)
A book without traditional images  Sep 9, 2000
In the late middle ages, no book of the bible was illustrated as frequently and fully as the book of Psalms. But then the practice went out of fashion. Now, contemporary Dutch artist Anneke Kaai has received the tradition, creating 25 admirable paintings and collages based on interpretations of 25 Psalms. The images, however, are not traditional: I find no scenes of David playing his harp in this tall, slim beautifully printed volume. Rather, the paintings are quite simple and abstract. A single, craggy cliff illustrates Psalm 31. The Psalm 84 is illustrated with small sparrows nest in the lily-shaped capital of the bronze column named Boaz, which stood outside Salomon's Temple. I considered this volume an exquisite expression of the religious art. It is intense and contemplative at the same time.
The Psalms Review  Sep 4, 2000
The book ties contemporary images with paraphrased Psalms. I think the Psalms are incredibly beautiful without being paraphrased.

The audience for this book is probably more of a pre-teen or teenager that is new to Christianity. That's not me.
