Timothy Keller is a New York pastor
and author of many books; notably
the best-seller: The Reason for God.
He and his wife wrote the final draft
of this devotional book based on the
Psalms while staying in the English
He reminds us that the Psalms were the divinely
inspired hymnbook for the public worship of God in
ancient Israel and throughout the centuries. When
Jesus entered Jerusalem the crowd spontaneously
greeted him by shouting Psalm 118: 26
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD”.
The Psalms are the divinely ordained way to learn
devotion to God as He reveals Himself. They would all
have been sung by Jesus. And they are also about Him.
This accessible book provides 365 daily readings from a
Psalm, followed by a short meditation on its meaning
and ending with a prayer. Keller explains the historical
context of each Psalm in plain language, how relevant it
is to us in the 21st Century and how we should be
repenting, praising God and thanking Him in all
circumstances. I highly recommend this book.
