Book Review: Psalms (Life Change Series)

Psalms (Life Change Series)
By The Navigators
NavPress, 2010
English, 99 pgs.

Product Description:
“Lord, teach us to pray.”

The book of Psalms is an answer to that prayer, leading those who study it into new emotional depth in their prayer and their daily lives.

Your prayers will be enriched and you will acquire a richer revelation of the God who invites you into a lifelong conversation.

• Includes 10 lessons, background information on Psalms, resource recommendations, and a “How to Use This Study" section

My Review:
The study is well organized and superbly written. I love that there is so much by way of application questions and activities and that there are reference notes already in the study. It's intended to be that you only need this book and your Bible to study and that is a big bonus for me. I can easily get "bogged down" with trying to find historical and topical references and information that I forget the spirit of the study. The study is written at a more-than-basic but not seminary-education-required level. I think this will be very useful as I teach my women's Sunday School class in the future. It will be easily adaptable to all the different levels in my class.

A copy of the book was provided to my by NavPress. No additional compensation has been received and I was not required to write a positive review.
