By reading one page each day, along with the assigned psalm text from the Bible, readers will be comforted and strengthened as they gain a better understanding of the concerns and themes of the psalmists of old as well as come to recognize the various forms of the psalms. Each meditation concludes with a prayer that invites readers to add their own petitions. A glossary, index, and a list of books for further reading are included.
"Marshall Johnson brings to the interpretive task all of the best gifts of faith ... heart and mind and imagination and realism. He matches the sequence of the Psalms to the days of the year, so that every day becomes a day with the Psalter. The result, to our benefit, is a read through of the Psalms in all of their 'stark reality, ' a reality rooted in and addressed back to God. Marshall ducks none of the hard questions, and shows how Israel's deep resolve of faith will comfort and sustain the church in every deep crisis. I anticipate that this book will be warmly welcomed and widely used, for its clear, accessible, well-said witness." -- Walter Brueggemann "Columbia Theological Seminary"
