Songs for Troubled Times: Expositions of Psalms (Paul A. Barker, Peter H. W. Lau) 9789832762171 (Pustaka Sufes)


Product Description:
I’m so glad this book was sent to me for review. I read it devotionally and opened myself to a spiritual feast. There are few activities in life that are as enriching as exposing ourselves to the Word of God. This is especially so when one is guided by those who know the Scriptures and the Lord of the Scriptures well and also know the world that we live in. The two authors of this book represent this kind of guide.

Everyone loves Psalm 23, but what about the gloomy indeed bitter ones? Can we learn from them of use them in our private prayers and public worship? Barker and Lau here offer us eight gripping sermons on some of the most difficult psalms, showing their relevance to our lives today. Whether you are familiar with the psalms or just beginning to study them, this collection will instruct your mind and warm your heart, I thoroughly recommend it.
