10 Minutes In The Word: Psalms – Book Review
Are you are interested in “drawing near to God so that He will draw near to you” (James 4:8) in your devotional time and your prayer life? Are you trying to deal with overwhelming emotions and difficult circumstances in life? Do you want to learn to praise God better but sometimes lack the words to do so?
Whenever I am faced with these situations, I find myself delving into the book of Psalms – the biblical book filled with prayers, praises, poetry and songs. I am delighted to discover 10 Minutes In The Word: Psalms, the perfect devotional accompaniment and gift book from Zondervan!
10 Minutes In The Word: Psalms opens with an introduction to Psalms. While the book of Psalms provides great insight into the heart of David – the beloved shepherd boy and king of Israel who wrote 73 of the psalms – did you know that there are at least six authors in all? The book as a whole expresses the writers’ serene confidence in the provision and providence of God.
The book is divided into 46 brief chapters that walk us through groupings of Psalms, providing us with insight and reflection into our daily readings. For example, as we read the first four Psalms, we are reminded that while we live in a day and age where advice and information are everywhere, there are really two types of advice available to us – worldly advice and Godly advice – and the counsel we choose impacts the entire course of our lives.
10 Minutes In The Word: Psalms is a wonderful gift or stocking stuffer for a graduate, new Christian, mentor, or friend, as well as the perfect devotional to use as you work your way through the Psalms!
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
