Book #17: the Way of the Righteous in the Muck of Life by Dale Ralph Davis

Number of pages: 144

American evangelist Dale Ralph Davis' book focusses on the first twelve Psalms, with essays on how he interprets all of them.

I quite enjoyed this book, particularly as I had never considered exactly why the Psalms are ordered as they are, but here they are shown that they set out the things we need to remember first, such as why God is there for us and how He will save the righteous. I loved the way that Davis used examples from his own experience to illustrate his own points.

I've been reading through the Psalms and this made a really good companion to them.

Next book: The Return of Sherlock Holmes (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle)
