“This accessible but profound study of the Psalms has warmed my heart and made me thankful again for the greater gift of Christ our King. There is gold on every page and comfort in each chapter. Once again we are all in Dale Ralph Davis’ debt for his scholarship presented with humility and his ministry fulfilled so faithfully. ”

David Gibson

Assistant Minister, High Church, Hilton, Aberdeen

“It is Ralph Davis at his best. Brilliant exposition punctuated by apt historical illustrations, pertinent quotations, home spun stories, personal honesty and delicious use of language.”

David Carmichael

Minister, Abbeygreen Church, Lesmahagow, Scotland

“Davis joins hands with the sacred songwriter in beckoning us to employ our grittiest grief, formidable fears, principle praises and staunchest certainties as we pour out our hearts into the bosom of God. … if you are trudging arduously before the oppressive presence of evil and darkness, you will find this book a true friend!”

Michael W. Philliber

Senior Pastor, Heritage Presbyterian Church (PCA), Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

“In this work of exposition, Davis again shows how unchanging God’s Word is, and how sufficient He is to meet us in whatever trial we face. Davis has a gift for bringing the word to bear in clear and crisp ways. This book does just that—and it’s another gift to God’s people from Dr. Davis.”

Courtney Ressig

Author of ‘Teach Me to Feel: Worshipping Through the Psalms in Every Season of Life’

“The treasure of this book is the way Dr. Davis skillfully walks his readers through the ancient words and literary styles of these Psalms into a grander view of the covenant–keeping God and a fuller understanding of his care for His people.”

Emily Woodard

Director of Women’s Ministry, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina

“The Way of the Righteous in the Muck of Life is a book which resonates with the heart and the experience of the child of God.”

William Mackenzie

Founder, Christian Focus Publications

“True worship is, as Dale Ralph Davis puts it in this brilliantly helpful book on Psalms 13–24, ‘from the top down’. So the same has to be true of our devotional reading of God’s word. Our true comfort, our deep encouragement to persevere, our solid growth in trust amidst the mayhem of life all start with God as he has spoken in his word. It’s this capacity to draw fresh devotional truths from the deep well of the biblical text that is the author’s great gift. Here is a fellow-traveller who is realistic and properly grounded on the same planet that the rest of us occupy, refreshing us along God’s way with God’s revealed and written truth. So the author’s profound understanding of what the text of the Psalms means leads to profound help with what the Psalms really do mean for you. Dale Ralph Davis has these two things the right way round. This book is an absolute gem!”

Dominic Smart

Minister, Gilcomston Church, Aberdeen, Scotland

“Awesome scholarship … together with a passion for hearing and passing on in a thoroughly down-to-earth style what God is saying to His church today.”

Michael Wilcock

Formerly Director of Pastoral Studies, Trinity College, Eastbourne, England

“Sharp, personal and funny illustrations, a vital, earnest and readable style, deep, nourishing, practical application built on a foundation of passionately thorough biblical, theological and linguistic scholarship.”

Colin Buchanan

Christian Children’s Recording Artist and author, Sydney, Australia

“Dale Ralph Davis has provided another faithful, lively and refreshing set of expositions. All Christians will benefit from this book and I hope it is read widely.”

Sam Allberry

Associate Minister, St Mary’s Church, Maidenhead, England; author, Connected: Living in Light of the Trinity, and Is God Anti-Gay?

“Always fresh, always insightful. Dale Ralph Davis shows you what’s there and leaves you wondering why you didn’t see it before!”

Colin S. Smith

Senior Pastor, The Orchard Evangelical Free Church, Arlington, IL; President, Unlocking the Bible

“Thank you Dr. Davis, for ‘yielding to the temptation’ to continue what you began with Psalm 1–12.”

Albert N. Martin

Former Pastor of Trinity Baptist Church, Montville, NJ

“Dale Ralph Davis is among the finest expositors of the Old Testament alive today. His style is unique and his content infectious. A pastor at heart, his insights are always governed by an absolute loyalty to the text, a belief that the Bible was written for today as much as yesterday, and a desire to encourage his readers to fall in love with Scripture and to trust it. These expositions of Psalms 13–24 tantalizingly suggest there may be further volumes given the enormous success of the first set (Ps. 1–12). What a treasure that would be! In the meantime, these expositions are pure gold.”

Derek Thomas

Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, SC
