This Bible Study has 12 Lessons

The way of the Psalms is a well-traveled and blessed way! Not just the psalmists but also God's people throughout many generations have used these words to find their way and to express their prayers and praises to their God along the way. In the Psalms we learn more about God's ways, human experience, and the beauty of poetic language. Kathleen Nielson invites us to spend time in the Psalms—musing, marking, meditating, memorizing, and praying.

In this second volume, Kathleen focuses on how to study the Psalms. Each lesson guides the study of one psalm and then provides the tools for more independent study of another thematically related psalm.

Living Word Bible Studies offer a guide into deeper study of God's Word, one whole book at a time. Five days of questions in each lesson lead the way to careful textual study, with helpful context and commentary woven throughout. The aim is to read the Scriptures—and to learn to read the Scriptures—with ever increasing discernment, delight, and conviction.


"Kathleen Nielson's inductive Bible studies have become standard tools for small groups reading the Bible together who are eager to understand what it says and how to live it out. These studies do not replace commentaries; rather, by asking shrewd questions, they teach people how to read, especially how to read God's holy Word for themselves. This second volume on select Psalms maintains the high standards of the earlier studies."

—D. A. Carson

"This is another fantastic Bible study resource from Kathleen. What comes across in all of her studies is a passionate love of the text and a disciplined study of its treasure, all while she shows us how it points forward to Christ. She not only uncovers the treasures that are to be found in these wonderful poems but, even more importantly, teaches us how to mine them for ourselves."

—Carrie Sandom

"Each time I pick up a Bible study written by Kathleen, I’m certain she has composed a work that comes from her own delight in God’s Word and her calling to provide excellent study guides for fellow students of Scripture.  This study of Psalms is compelling and offers an invitation for us to explore the Psalms and learn how they connect to all of God’s Word, pointing us ultimately to Christ. The women in our church will enjoy this study, I am sure, for it will show them what it means to be human beings before God and will train them in responding to him."

—Kari Stainback
