Part commentary, part word study, and part devotional summary/analysis, the author has brought together his earlier treatment of the Psalms in a repackaged format suitable for daily personal reading. Reflective, suggestive, informative, and inspiring, this book models the profound but subtle scholarship for which Motyer was well known.

I've long taken the view that anything by Alec Motyer is always worth reading. His grasp of the Bible is second-to-none. The publishers have excelled themselves with this handsome hardback volume. Here are 73 days of readings incorporating Motyer's fresh translation of the Psalms. A book to savour and enjoy.

Eddie Olliffe, Together Magazine

What a wonderful resource! This is an invaluable study companion for anyone reading through the Psalms ... very accessible and user friendly; no knowledge of Hebrew is necessary. I heartily recommend this for pastors, students and laity alike.

Seulgi L. Byun, Director of Postgraduate Studies, Oak Hill College, London

... expository without being dry, devotional without being forced. As we get to look over his shoulder, we learn to read the Psalms better for ourselves ... delicious combination-richly full, concisely put.

Mark Dever, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church and President,, Washington, DC

This book is an absolute treasure - a life-time of godly scholarship, faithful preaching and pastoral wisdom all in one volume ... a wonderful way to engage freshly with these rich Biblical songs!

Jonathan Lamb, Keswick Ministries, CEO and minister-at-large

This book is the dream combination: the Psalms presented as a daily devotional by the great Christian scholar ... Everyone who picks up this book will find that they not only learn to read and understand the Psalms as Christian scripture, they may also find their prayer life changed in a profound and dramatic way.

Carl R. Trueman, Paul Woolley Professor of Historical Theology and Church History, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Customer Reviews

A wonderful companion to the Psalms, the church's hymn book. Helping the text come alive, but allowing the Word to speak clearly. The Psalms should be part of the prayer life of all Christians. Alec Motyer hands us the text for our daily devotions.
