It’s that time of year once of again when believers, all across the globe, are embarking on various reading plans.
So when at a local Christian bookstore I stumbled in to Tim Keller’s The Songs of Jesus: A Year of Daily Devotions in the Psalms, and knowing that the new year was just a day away, I thought I’d pick it up and peruse it.
After perusing its Introduction and several passages (Psalm 1, 23, 104:14-15), I had a winner for the new year of 2016.
“The Book of Psalms is known as the Bible’s songbook—Jesus knew all 150 psalms intimately, and relied on them to face every situation, including his death.
Two decades ago, Tim Keller began reading the entire Book of Psalms every month. The Songs of Jesus is based on his accumulated years of study, insight, and inspiration recorded in his prayer journals. Kathy Keller came to reading the psalms as a support during an extended illness. Together they have distilled the meaning of each verse, inviting readers into the vast wisdom of the psalms.
In the past I’ve prayed through the Psalter several times. This time around I’m looking forward to walking and praying through the Psalter with Tim and Kathy Keller.
