First of all, do NOT let this be your only translation of the Book of Psalms. It is a selection, and the translations are often VERY free. Get yourself a good, mainstream translation. (I like the NRSV.) Having issued my caveat, this is, in my opinion, an illuminating and sometimes spiritually profound interpretation. Mitchell is ecumenical, even syncretic, so he often introduces concepts from other religious traditions. For me, this sometimes enriches and deepens the text; sometimes, I find it jarring. Overall, a worthwhile and spiritually moving collection.
