My Review

I love the book of Psalms! And this book did a great job teaching it in a practical and understandable way.

Each week the author focuses on a specific Psalm. In this 52 week format, he couldn’t cover all of them.

He also provides references from the New Testament as well as other Psalms or verses within a Psalm.  He this follows up with stories from his life, Biblical applications as he takes the Psalm and helps the reader see how he or she could apply it to life. The chapters are such you could read them in one sitting or break them up into 5 daily readings. Each chapter ends with a prayer for this week and a question for this week.  Both the prayer and the question are short and concise. Though, personally, I would have preferred to have the prayer and question at the beginning of the study.

I definitely have enjoyed and been touched by what I’ve read in this devotional. This would make a great gift for yourself as well as others who want to study the Psalms in an engaging and uplifting manner.

I love to read, especially mystery books. Though in the past couple of years I’ve been a part of the ACFW Book Club and have found some wonderful writers. It’s been fun to interact with authors.

Welcome! I appreciate your thoughts!
