One of the members for the retranslation of the Psalms in the 1979 Book of Common Prayer, J Chester Johnson is a poet who replaced WH Auden on the BCP translation committee. In this episode, Chester shares his experience of not only interpreting the Psalms but also how this poetic form of scripture still speaks for the church today. You can find his poetry and his book on Auden and the Psalms here.
