These two careful studies of the first 24 Psalms reveal a treasure trove of essential truths. Readers are plunged into the midst of King David's world, where they will find a message that resonates with their own experience of adversity, namely, that faith will win out in the end. This pack includes: The Way Of The Righteous In The Muck Of Life: Psalms 1-12 and Slogging Along in the Paths of Righteousness: Psalms 13-24
The Way Of The Righteous In The Muck Of Life: Psalms 1-12
In the opening pages of the Psalms, believers discover foundational truth for right living-and great delight-as children of God. Trusted theologian Dale Ralph Davis leads readers through a careful study of Psalms 1-12 with clear application for daily life.
The Psalmist begins with the most essential truth for mankind, Davis explains: "Nothing is so crucial as your belonging to the congregation of the righteous." And it is the Word of God that provides the direction for the believer's life. It is here, Davis points out, that "the righteous man gets his signals for living." The delight of the righteous is in the "law"-the teachings-of the Lord. Indeed, for those who belong to Him, meditating on God's Word is "the pursuit of pleasure"! The Psalms are a treasure trove for such a pursuit.
As the first 12 Psalms continue, we see basic principles unfold with great clarity. Much like our troubles today, the Psalmist endured wickedness all around, a world hostile to the true God-and on a very personal level-deceit and persecution from his enemies. Readers are pointed toward the glorious rule of the Messiah, to whom the whole world belongs. In light of this realization, we are prepared to face all kinds of troubles that cause despair. The righteous rely on God, and the Psalms teach us how. This book is ideal for use by small groups, as a teaching guide or for reference.
Slogging Along in the Paths of Righteousness: Psalms 13-24
Find the encouragement that Psalms 13-24 hold for the Scripture-filled life. Dale Ralph Davis plunges right into the middle of King David's hard times with a study that is resonant for our lives. King David's faith brought him through the muddy parts of life. Will we find that depression is our final response to a hard path? Will faith carry us across?
"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.
