A Brief Book Notice from Books At a Glance
By Fred Zaspel
Over the past months I’ve been reading through this unique devotional aid from Dane Ortlund with genuine pleasure. It was a great idea, and he pulls it off well.
Ortlund presents the full text of each psalm (ESV) along with a very brief (one-page) devotional reflection. The reflections are not expositions, as such, but they consistently capture the gist of each psalm with relevant devotional Christian reflection. The Psalms are prayers, and Ortlund’s treatment of each individual psalms both directs our understanding the theme or prominent thoughts in each psalm and aids us in praying accordingly.
A helpful book for personal daily devotional use and for leading others through the Psalms.
