Item description for Sonnets of David, Book I: A Poetic Paraphrase of Psalms 1-41 (Bk. I) by Robert Hellam...
If you love the Psalms and you like English-language poetry, then this is the book for you. Even if you have never read the Psalms, or you thought you didn't like poetry, this may be the book for you! These are the first forty-one psalms, paraphrased into the sonnet form favored by the greatest poets to write in the English language. The author is a fresh voice in American poetry, published previously only in various small magazines. This is his first book, and these sonnets have never before been in print. These poems are not dry theology or old-fashioned academic writing, but living language. They are engaging and up-to-date, without detracting from the majesty of the originals. While the author is a committed Christian, it is his hope that this little book will appeal to Jews, adherents of other religions, and non-religious people as well.

I love to read sonnets, and this is a book of sonnets. I also love the Psalms, and this is a paraphrase of the first 41 psalms of the Bible. They are extremely well done. I will certainly recommend this book to all my friends and relatives!
