The psalms help us to find refuge in God in the midst of trouble, and model how we can respond to the ups and downs of life in the context of our covenant relationship with him.

Showing not only how each psalm might be read or preached, but also how it could be prayed, sung or used in pastoral and self-care, Tim Chester invites us to engage deeply with this poetic Scripture and learn how we can find the voice of Christ at the centre of it.

Once more a mature and yet accessible look at scripture, the introduction to this book is somewhat shorter than the previous ones which works well as each psalm has its own exposure. The verses and different section of each psalm are detailed with reference to the wider biblical texts and the contemporary world of the author. The imagery is well explained and even the potential feeling of the author is covered helping bring the psalms to life and make them resonate more clearly. The psalms are well researched and the wider references are useful for wider reading although it is the links within scripture that really helped me see the psalms and their different patterns so well.

I received an arc from NetGalley and this is my honest opinion.

What a great study guide to be used to walk through the Psalms. Easy to follow and great for taking notes on the Psalms.

This devotional/study guide is definitely something I would purchase. The guide applies applicable stories and additional scripture references. Easy guide for the early Christian as well.

A extensive commentary on Psalms 42-89, including line-by-line analysis to help us better understand. This book analyses the various ways we can read these lyrical Scriptures and provides guidance on how to sing, pray, teach, and meditate on each psalm. The NIV text for each psalm is included alongside the discussion and can be used to deepen personal understanding, teach, or improve preaching. The psalms are ideal for guiding us through tough times through Christ, and this book shows us how to apply the principles to modern-day life.

This was a pretty good Bible Commentary. I was hesitant about this because I've never heard of the writers, but I was impressed.

The Psalms are so interesting and I really enjoyed diving deeper into them to learn more than just the surface information.

I learned a lot from this and would recommend it to anyone looking for a new Bible Commentary.
