The book does not include a discussion of every Psalm, it does however contain sections on more than 150 of the poems. The stories presented alongside the Psalms range greatly in origin, from tales of sinking ships in the 1800''s to an account of a third century king reading the works while on his deathbed. The volume concludes with a detailed index listing all of the subjects discussed throughout the book.
