Deeper Places

Matthew Jacoby

$17.99

Paperback
Also Available In
People typically have two ways of thinking about spirituality. Either they have accepted the false reality that they can only know about God, without knowing him personally, or they have romanticized spirituality to such an extent that it becomes far too otherworldly. In either case, expectations are lowered, and they live in spiritual bankruptcy, feeling like spiritual failures.

Pastor and musician Matthew Jacoby sets the Psalms to music as they were intended, performing them with his band, Sons of Korah, for over fifteen years. In the Psalms, he has discovered a portrait of authentic spirituality that helps us journey from deep sadness to profound joy. Jacoby gives readers an in-depth look at the Psalms as a pathway to intimate and satisfying relationship with God.

A balm for your heart!
5 stars By Keona, Oct 02 2017
The Psalms have been such a source of comfort for me. To know that I can openly and honestly pour out my heart to God has been liberating. To know that God is with me has been comforting. To know God's Word more and more has been life changing. There are so many reasons to purchase this book but I'll keep this brief and say that it will be like the Psalms themselves - a balm for your heart! 
Let me encourage you with one of my favorite statements:
"When our desires lock onto God, we find that his desires have previously locked onto us. As we pursue God, we come to realize that he first pursued us. There is no greater affirmation than to be the object of the desire of God. To be loved with such persistence and sacrifice by the God who created the universe is the greatest truth our minds can lay hold of." Matthew Jacoby.

A Deep Experience
4 stars By Dale Harcombe, Jan 14 2014
It took me a little while to get into this book. Not sure why. Perhaps it initially seemed not quite what I was expecting, but once I got past the first chapter or two I started to enjoy the way it was written, and the insights given as well as re-reading some of the psalms
The psalms have long been a favourite resource of many believers so it is good to have a closer look at them. After reading part of this book I wrote a blog about Gratitude. 
I also ended up with lots of quotes that appealed. Here are just a couple. I could have gone to any page and selected others.
'Throughout the book of Psalms, the mighty acts of God are celebrated but it is important to note that most of the psalms were written in the gaps, in the periods when God wasn't doing anything.'
'Verbalising a feeling is a necessary part of allowing ourselves to feel a feeling.'
'Joy must be shared in order to be fully experienced.' 
I actually started before the date I put it up. Just forgot to add it earlier. It is a book that demands to be read slowly. I read it a chapter a day. I think this book is a great resource for taking a fresh look at the Psalms. Hopefully it will also lead those who read it to a deeper relationship with God.
