A very refreshing exposition of the first twelve psalms. Davis has a gift of explaining the Hebrew text in a way that is so simple and yet profound. He begins by showing us why the first psalm, with its teaching on two ways of life, is where it is at the beginning of the collection. He then goes on by showing how the second psalm moves from looking at the life of the individual, to the bigger picture and international scene as 'the nations' and 'rulers' take their stand against the Lord and His Anointed King.
There then follows expositions of psalms 3 to 12, showing how 'the righteous' should approach God during troubled times - or indeed 'the muck of life' that the title refers to. Here's a book filled with clear Bible teaching. He reinforces this with lots of memorable illustrations and stories, either from his own experiences, or vast knowledge of history and the world in general. The book is also filled with relevant practical application for all today, particularly in the area of prayer. A very heart-warming and encouraging book. I look forward to the next volume ...
