Joy, despair, faith, doubt, hate, love, frustration, patience, turmoil, peace, insecurity, trust - the book of Psalms covers the range of human emotions.
In Psalms for Life, John Eaton explores the poetry of the Psalms as a never failing source of challenge, comfort, and encouragement. Beginning with Psalm 1 and continuing through to Psalm 150, he provides a short reflection on each psalm, distilling and explaining the poet's essential message, and ending with a brief meditative prayer.
As a distinguished biblical scholar who has studied the Psalms all his life, John Eaton writes with warmth, clarity and authority. As a Christian, he sees the Psalms as prophetic of Christ, revealing vital and often little-known facets of his life and character. As a sensitive and skilful teacher, he draws out the full significance of these ancient songs as a source of wisdom and insight for all who live the Christian life today.
