In the opening sections of the Psalms, believers discover foundational truth for right living - and great delight - as children of God. Trusted theologian Dale Ralph Davis leads listeners 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. Listeners 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 audiobook is ideal for use by small groups, as a teaching guide or for reference.

I learned a few things
I love the Psalms. To get someone to talk about how the Psalms speaks to them is a wonderful and pure joy. I live in the Psalms and have done so for some time. The plain fact is that I love the Bible and read it through each year, however I find I hear God more clearly in the Psalm. Every feeling good and bad are there. During the dark days of 2020, this book is a blessing. I learned a few things.
