Item description for Psalms for a Pilgrim People by Jim Cotter...
Overview This book is neither a translation nor a paraphrase of the Psalms. Rather, the aim has been to make the Psalms prayable for those who find stumbling blocks in many of them as they have been variously translated into English. There is much in the Psalms, written centuries ago, that still speaks to us today; but there are other passages that trouble us. We live in a world vastly different from that of the Psalmist. Jim Cotter's Psalms take today's realities into account by including reference to issues of concern to us now, while retaining the poetry and beauty of the original Psalms.
Publishers Description Cotter gracefully merges the beauty and poetry of the original Psalms with the reality of today's world in well-crafted, contemporary language.

Reading the Psalms through a new Lens Mar 31, 2000
Reading the Psalms can become a routine part of daily prayer life. In "Psalms for a Pilgrim People", I have found the Psalms brought alive in a way that reflects my Christian experience.
In this book, Jim Cotter preserves the beauty and poetry of the text, and also manages to use language and images that are meaningful to contemporary life. He adds prayers and meditations that bring the words of the Old Testament in to focus through the lens of the life and teaching of Jesus.
