A Brief Book Notice from Books At a Glance
We all want and relentlessly pursue joy, and the last thing we want is to feel “broken.” But Clay Werner shows us from Psalm 32 how it is only through the one we can find the other. Here is the endorsement I gave the book:
Only in the gospel could the words “deep joy” and “brokenness” be brought together, and Clay Werner’s engaging exposition of David’s experience in Psalm 32 explains for us just how this is so. A stimulating and thoroughly delightful read.
And this from Andrew Compton of Mid-American Reformed Seminary:
Clay Werner shows that what King David penned three millennia ago has tremendous explanatory power for our own experiences today. Centered around the finished work of Christ on our behalf, Werner unpacks this remarkable passage of Scripture and shows us the confidence we can have to take off the masks we wear to achieve our horizontal goals, and instead embrace true repentance.
It’s a short book, clear, accessible, eminently suitable for both private devotional reading and group study.
