The author explains one of his secrets behind the powerful witness of his own life--that he had learned to pray the Psalms and from them drew on the power of God in his years of imprisonment--in a new edition that includes a brief biographical sketch by a friend and biographer of the author, which helps us understand the man who used the Psalms as his prayer book. Original.
