If you have ever been tempted to disregard Psalm 119 under an assumption that it is some dry and dusty psalm about Old Testament law, you are certainly not alone. However, in this in-depth study of the longest chapter in Scripture, Chris Wright reminds us that it is first and foremost a prayer overflowing from a deeply intimate relationship with God.

It is an unfolding conversation between the psalmist’s rawest emotions and God’s word, his source of comfort, delight, guidance, grace and life-giving encouragement. As a travelling companion for our own journeys, Psalm 119 serves as a powerful reminder of how Scripture speaks to our deepest desires and our greatest needs, and how, if it is to do its work in us, we must know and love the Scripture for ourselves.

Rather than approaching the text linearly, Wright explores five recurring themes within the psalm, drawing forth deeply personal and powerful applications. This thematic approach is ideal for pastors wrestling with how to preach Psalm 119 in its entirety, as well as for personal and small group study. Discussion and reflection questions are included. This is an excellent resource for anyone desiring to foster a closer relationship with God through Scripture.

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."
