Series: For Today
As part of the For Today series, The Psalms for Today is an engaging look at the psalms and the perfect study for those wishing to begin or enhance their understanding of who God is and who we are called to be as God's people. Beth Tanner does not offer easy answers but rather moves readers to come to their own conclusions. Her contemporary examples show that though the world has changed since the psalms were written, humanity's need to search their souls is as powerful as ever.
The For Today series was designed to provide reliable and accessible resources for the study and real life application of important biblical texts, theological documents, and Christian practices. The emphasis of the series is not only on the realization and appreciation of what these subjects have meant in the past, but also on their value in the present--"for today." Thought-provoking questions are included at the end of each chapter, making the books ideal for personal study and group use.

WB1 Stars Out Of 5June 12, 2008WBI was given this series as a gift and eager to read each volume. Ms. Tanner's is the one I found most forgettable; written with a low-level condescension not found in the other books in this otherwise intelligent collection. The over-wrought insights she offers are tough to separate from the self-consciousness of the weak writing.
