Wayne DawsonYokohamaAge: 55-65Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5A helpful balm on the road to GileadJuly 19, 2018Wayne DawsonYokohamaAge: 55-65Gender: MaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Daily devotionals are things we read and reflect on and we need to pray about what we have learned. So it is important to spend some time thinking about how the daily message applies to one's own life.
That said, I found the gentle reminders that Keller writes for each day have been helpful in regaining my focus as a Christian. He tries to convey a New Testament understanding of these Psalms. Since some of the Psalms ask God to take vengeance on the evildoers, a New Testament understanding is a very important perspective to look to on how we should view and understand these passages. It is not a full bible commentary, but it is enough to help gain perspective for the day and over time, it appears to even help bring healing of the spirit.
fussyme5 Stars Out Of 5Book that sheds new light on the PsalmsMarch 9, 2018fussymeQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I am so excited to be reading this book along with the Psalms. I have been singing choral settings of the Psalms all my life but I have no memory for numbers and I couldn't tell you which number goes with which Psalm and I've missed a bunch of the less popular Psalms in between. It's a problem. I determined I needed more study time in the Psalms so I bought this book and I'm so glad I did. Nerd alert: I even took things a step further and am singing settings of each Psalm out of my collection of hymnals as I go through the Psalms. I am so thankful. This book is really really helping me to understand some of the concepts and imagery I am encountering as I go.
