When we face trouble, feel joy, or just want spiritual inspiration, the Bible’s book of Psalms gives us wisdom and comfort. Rev. J.W. Gregg Meister shows us in The Psalms: The Prayer Book of Jesus that Jesus himself turned to the Psalms for strength and guidance while he walked on earth. Meister’s fresh reflections open up the book of Psalms for contemporary readers with helpful strategies for praying the psalms with Christian resolve. Grounded in his rich experiences as Presbyterian pastor, entrepreneur, and mission-minded videographer in Latin America and Israel, Meister offers valuable insights into the context, content, and claim of selected psalms. Written with clarity and compassion, Meister’s perceptive meditations on these psalms manage the rare combination of deepening both understanding and faith.
