The Psalms are undeniably beautiful. They are also difficult, and readers often come away convinced that tremendous riches remain just beyond their grasp. In this book, Dr. W. Robert Godfrey invites us to journey with him towards a greater understanding and love for these sacred verses. The timeless elegance of the Psalms, their depth of expression, and testimony to the greatness of God have enchanted and edified God’s people for centuries. Learning to Love the Psalms is intended to help today’s Christians share in that delight.
Dr. W. Robert Godfrey is president and professor of church history of Westminster Seminary California, a Ligonier Ministries teaching fellow, and author of many books
“The Psalms join the hearts of believers to the heart of their King as together they pant after the glory of God. As a scholar who loves the psalms, Dr. Godfrey offers a very helpful introduction to reading the Psalter and short reflections on selected psalms that convey the spirit of childlike faith. In a time when biblical studies are dominated by technical scholarship, here we have a simply written, deeply personal, and yet profoundly insightful book on the part of the Bible that Calvin rightly called ‘an anatomy of all parts of the soul.’ Read this book prayerfully and be spiritually refreshed, challenged, and fed.” – Dr. Joel R. Beeke, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary
"Learning to Love the Psalms is the ideal book for students in college or seminary, for musicians and pastors, and indeed for Christians of every shape and size. May it help to produce a new era of love for the Psalms!” – Dr. Sinclair B. Ferguson, Ligonier Ministries
