… winsome … full of wise exposition and application of Psalm 139. Richard not only takes us through the text a few verses at a time but also draws on the whole of Scripture, like all good Christian writers and teachers ought to.
Alistair Purss, Lead Pastor, Dumfries Baptist Church, Scotland
This book winsomely reveals that God is not against us but for us and ever working to shape us into his beloved children. I sincerely wish I had had this book to give to the countless number of people who came needing to hear its message of God’s loving presence and constant care.
Mark R. Patterson, Director, Flourish Institute: School of Ministry
This is a warm, practical, encouraging Bible–soaked book for any believer about what used to be regarded as elements of a ‘normal’ Christian life – in other words, one with perplexity, challenge, heartache and darkness, but nonetheless a trust that God is somehow at work even when we don’t understand what is happening to us.
David Baker, Editor, Evangelicals Now
… warm devotion and faithful doctrine take us deeper and deeper into each verse of this transformational Psalm, growing our confidence that God is good even when life is hard.
