A Word from the General Editor

     Sometimes, when reading the Bible, it seems as if our lives are worlds apart from those included in the pages of Scripture.  It is easy to ponder, sometimes with guilt and secrecy in our hearts, whether the Bible is relevant to feelings we have today, thoughts we have today, struggles we have today, or situations we face today.

     This study in the Book of Psalms holds good news for you.  A psalmist has likely written about whatever feelings you might experience in any situation in which you find yourself.  These lessons speak to those who are soaring on the heights of spiritual growth and to those who are in the depths of spiritual weakness.  It legitimizes the feelings of those seeking God's recompense for persecutors and those seeking forgiveness for doing wrong to others.  It teaches lessons for dealing with the perils or the successes of life with great grace, patience, and faith while extolling the loving kindness of our God, who is always worthy of praise.

     This journey through the Book of Psalms is for you.  If you earnestly apply its lessons, it will benefit you and those around you as you seek to walk the narrow path surrounded by distractions, faith challenges, and contemporary thought.
