I found this to be interesting reading from Dr. Moore. I have listened to Glenn Beck and appreciate the news commentary and sound clips of news events he plays on his radio show. Dr. Moore’s piece presents the phenomenon and mystique of Mr. Beck in a different light that I hadn’t heard before.
“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” – 1 Peter 2:9
The Psalms Bible study is part of the Lifechange series published by Navpress. It’s stated purpose is to examine the life of prayer of the authors of the psalms, thereby deepening and enriching our own personal prayer lives. It is a large and uneasy task to fit 150 psalms into a 10 week study, but this book does a good job at surveying and overviewing all the psalms. In some cases, a psalm is merely touched on, and in other instances a psalm is looked at more in-depth. The study is organized into 10 weeks and each week’s study centers on a theme (such as intercession, restoration, forgiveness) and examines psalms that illustrate that theme. Each week’s study provides basic questions and a section of further questions and optional / additional applications. The study provides helpful context and literary notes and a bibliography of additional resources for further study. It is a brief introduction to the psalms but a helpful study book that can be used by any individual or small group or classroom setting.

“Christians are like the several flowers in a garden that have each of them the dew of Heaven, which, being shaken with the wind, they let fall at each other’s roots, whereby they are jointly nourished, and become nourishers of each other.” – John Bunyan
