Tehillim touches us all - our lives, our hearts, our neshamos. We turn to Tehillim in times of joy and times of trouble; for comfort and guidance; to beg Hashem for help and thank Him for His blessings. King David's words have the uncanny power of touching all people, at all times, in all situations.
In The Touch of Tehillim Rabbi Yechiel Sperobrings a new dimension to Tehillim's eternal words. He introduces every chapter with insights culled from dozens of commentaries, both classic and contemporary, and then, with the flair for storytelling that has made him a bestselling author, he illustrates Tehillim's messages with true-life stories.
When David HaMelech speaks of living a life built on truth, we are inspired - and when we read a story of a CEO who finds a novel way to test the honesty of his executives, we see how the concept plays itself out in 21st century life. Here are stories of heroism, emunah, and profound optimism - in a tiny school in Yemen, in Hebron Yeshiva after the dreadful massacre, in 21st century hospitals and forgotten Ukranian villages.
Tehillim is, indeed, the song of the Jewish People - and in this book Rabbi Spero is like a maestro conducting its splendid symphony, helping us hear its beauty and harmony, allowing us to savor and appreciate every word of King David's timeless song.
