Delivered: The Bible Beautiful - The Book of Psalms
“Delivered:” is a series in which we look at crowdfunded ideas that have successfully shipped to their supporters. We dive into the final product, after its long journey from concept to fulfillment.
In the chaos of my daily life, I need frequent reminders to slow down and connect with God. Sometimes adding Bible reading to my to-do list feels like another stressor instead of the calming experience it should be. That's why the Bible Beautiful's Book of Psalms has been an amazing addition to my daily study. Their edition of Psalms seeks to enhance the Bible study experience and help readers connect with God not just by verse, but in images.
The creators wanted to help readers experience the joy and grief written in Psalms in a more intimate way to connect with God. Reading the verses along with the beautiful accompanying photography creates a feeling of peace and comfort and inspires me to draw closer to God.
Because Psalms is a book of song and poetry, the mixed art forms--music, photography, and text--combine to make something exquisitely beautiful. As someone who has sung in church choir, I am very familiar with many of the verses, but by adding photography, it has helped me look at Psalms in a new way.
