Summary: “This book…is a summons to holiness, a celebration of the beauty and sweetness of God, a call to preach and teach and live the gospel in a needy world.” So writes E. Calvin Beisner in the preface to this devotional exposition of 19 select psalms. Beisner explores what the Psalms tell us about the character of God and his relationship with his people – his covenant of grace. By highlighting that covenant, Beisner shows the overarching unity of the richly varied experiences portrayed by the psalmists. The Psalms offer us not disjointed glimpses of God but a grand mosaic crafted to inspire worship and a godly walk.
