Charles Swindoll does it again with his `Living the Psalms'. Admittedly not all of the Psalms, as it would take 4-5 volumes to examine them all to this depth, for he does dive deep. He goes through Psalms # 1, 5, 8, 13,15, 19, 23, 26, 27, 32, 42+43, 46, 54, 63, 91, 100, 101, 116, 119, 127+128, 131, 137, 139 (twice), 142, and 149. He does this to give a look in depth to how each Psalm he looks at covers: compromise, being overlooked, despondency, weakened integrity, divine silence, uncertainty, mistreatment, fear, unforgiving conscience, turmoil, personal weakness, difficult people, ritual religion, enemy attack, ingratitude, aimlessness, sorrow, grief, low enthusiasm, family life, impatient arrogance, lingering consequences, insignificance, insecurity, depression, and praiseless times. In short, the table of contents alone is enough to put a minor manic depressive like me into a tailspin. But worry not! For this is a study on the Psalms to, if not end your bad or low...
I wanted to spend some time in the Psalms and came across this book. The book covers 25 different Psalms and focuses on different challenges of life, i.e., compromise, discouragement, fear, mistreatment, etc. It is set up like a devotional: 26 weeks with 5 days of study each week. The daily reading isn't very long. I liked this book so much by Swindoll that I want to read Living the Proverbs. I see myself revisiting different weeks of the book (and Psalms) in the future as needed.
Charles Swindoll writtings always sounds like he is by your side, talking about the christian life, encouraging you and showing the human side of the biblical texts that sometimes we simply forget. In this book, he does the same, but with a special touch, since he is reflecting about the most personal book of the Bible. If you need relief from the daily problems and reflect how you act through all these situations, this is a great book for you!
