Spiritual reflections and personal observations on the Psalms.Few biblical books so widely and deeply resonate with spiritual pilgrims as the Psalms. Rich in powerful and evocative imagery, reflecting timeless human emotions and experiences ranging from the depths of despair to the highest joy, these ancient writings affirm the eternal truths that God is present, God loves, God cares, and God saves. From the heartfelt cries of individuals and the story of the Israelite nation woven throughout, contemporary readers join the psalmists in seeking and finding the God of hope, comfort, strength, protection, and renewal. Following an introduction, this book guides readers on a year-long journey through the Psalms, offering a personal study/reading for each week. Each reading carefully unpacks the psalm, highlights its key insights, and closes with a reflection and a prayer.
