PTSD & Psalm Twenty-Three: Coming Up out of PTSDs Trench will draw you into the very essence of post-traumatic stress disorder. Robert Scholten does this through vivid word pictures and clarity of writing that touch hearts and minds. Roberts passion and compassion for veterans and families struggling with PTSD opens new avenues of understanding for a very misunderstood reality of life. Robert survived Vietnam without a scratch as a gunner on a Duster attached to the 173rd Infantry Airborne. However, he was unaware of an internal wound. He left Vietnam, but Vietnam never left him. His journey through PTSD will amaze you. Robert buried everything negative about Vietnam. He never talked about the bloodshed. It was imprisoned under lock and key deep in his soul, never to see the light of day. Nearly forty years after his tour of Vietnam, Robert fell prey to PTSD. In November of 2007, Robert was admitted into the Lexington, Kentucky, VAs six-week, clinical, in-house PTSD rehabilitation program. He remains under their care. Up from that experience, and through the years since, he has felt compelled to bear his soul in hopes of assisting other PTSD sufferers, and those who care about them.

Oft-referenced and frequently set to music, Psalm 137 - which begins "By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion" - has become something of a cultural touchstone for music and Christianity across the Atlantic world. It has been a top single more than once in the 20th century, from Don McLean's haunting Anglo-American folk cover to Boney M's West Indian disco mix. In Song of Exile, David Stowe uses a wide-ranging, interdisciplinary approach that combines personal interviews, historical overview, and textual analysis to demonstrate the psalm's enduring place in popular culture. The line that begins Psalm 137 - one of the most lyrical of the Hebrew Bible - has been used since its genesis to evoke the grief and protest of exiled, displaced, or marginalized communities. Despite the psalm's popularity, little has been written about its reception during the more than 2,500 years since the Babylonian exile. Stowe locates its use in the American Revolution and the Civil Rights movement, and internationally by anti-colonial Jamaican Rastafari and immigrants from Ireland, Korea, and Cuba. He studies musical references ranging from the Melodians' Rivers of Babylon to the score in Kazakh film Tulpan. Stowe concludes by exploring the presence and absence in modern culture of the often-ignored final words: "Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones." Usually excised from liturgy and forgotten by scholars, Stowe finds these words echoed in modern occurrences of genocide and ethnic cleansing, and more generally in the culture of vengeance that has existed in North America from the earliest conflicts with Native Americans. Based on numerous interviews with musicians, theologians, and writers, Stowe reconstructs the rich and varied reception history of this widely used, yet mysterious, text.
