Psalms and Proverbs is a presentation of the word of God crafted for a modern age. Eugene H. Peterson, translator and editor, learned from his years of teaching and pasturing that most people, through familiarity--or frustration--with the Bible, were missing the whole message of scripture, "the word that God uses to create and save us, heal and bless us, judge and rule over us." So he set out to give us that word in language we use every day, creating a reading Bible that would enable the word to penetrate our hearts and minds, transforming us day by day into the persons God desires us to become.
Now, you can now experience the most often read books of the Bible in this fresh, eye-opening way presented in a thirty-one-day devotional. The Psalms pull every scrap and dimension of human experience into the presence of God, and the pithy Proverbs sharpen our insights into everyday life. Psalms and Proverbs will challenge you to see God's word in a whole new light.
