I love this devotional. Each day I'm greeted with a psalm or portion of a psalm, along with a devotional and other great snippets. My favorite snippets are the bits from hymns, but there are also quotes and more in depth information about a word or phrase. I've found this book enlightening and an enjoyable way to start my day.
The psalms are offered using the New Living Translation. I am used to reading NIV but this translation has been a nice change, shedding new light on familiar passages. I highly recommend this book.
Of devotionals I have used, this has been the best. I think this is my fourth year going through this devotional. Not only are the stories that illustrate the Psalm of the day rich and helpful, but the periodic explanations on the structure and intent of Hebrew poetry add genuine help in getting the most out of reading the Psalms. I study other books of the Bible, but this is usually where I begin my day, and it provides sustenance when my Bible study time in other books is limited.
This devotional is so rich and inspiring! The research and information that sidelines the scripture is nothing short of amazing. My mother gave the One Year Book of Psalms devotional to me as a gift two years ago and I have read it every day since. I have since purchased this as a gift for others!
