Focusing on a dozen psalms, Clint McCann leads readers through some of the church's favorite psalms as well as some lesser-known gems. Each chapter lets the reader understand the original meaning of the psalm and considers ways that our life of faith today can be enriched through these scriptural treasures. McCann is an international expert on the Psalms, and here he presents his insights with a passion for the church and its life today. Psalms that receive chapter-long study include Ps.1, 'Trees planted by streams of water'; Ps. 8, 'O Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth'; Ps. 13, 'How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever?'; Ps. 23, 'The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want'; Ps. 32, 'I will confess my transgressions to the Lord'; Ps. 51, 'Have mercy on me, O God'; Ps. 63, 'My soul thirsts for you'; Ps. 73, 'Truly God is good to the upright'; Ps. 90, 'Teach us to count our days'; Ps. 103, 'Bless the Lord, O my soul'; Ps. 139, 'O Lord,you have searched me and known me'; and Ps. 148, 'Praise the Lord, O my soul!'
