Psalms is not only the best-loved and most-quoted book of the Bible but also the repository of history's most touching and profound devotional literature. Treasures from the Psalms aids readers in a fresh discovery of Psalms as a modern resource for inspiration, worship, praise, and prayer.
This wise, user-friendly book presents devotional meditations on forty-five of the most meaningful and inspiring psalms. Henry Gariepy's commentary is designed to both penetrate and personalize these ancient poems. Each short meditation opens with a verse from the selected psalm, provides insight into the meaning of the text, applies its message to the Christian life, and culminates with a sentence prayer.
The Bible, as a whole, is God's word to humanity. The psalms are unique in that they also echo human words to God. Gariepy shows readers the hope and guidance to be taken from this double truth, taking special care to illustrate the use of the psalms for addressing the spiritual issues and needs of life today. Several pages of learned information about psalms literature complete the book.
Perfect for devotional reading, for personal or group study, or for gift giving, this volume is sure to enrich the souls of readers everywhere.
