The cries of the human heart do not change from one generation to the next. The expressions of the Psalmist, then, remain strikingly relevant and understandable to us today. Through petition, praise, lament and song, the Psalmist articulates both the difficulties of living in a fallen world but also the eternal truths about the character of God. Those who are burdened by life’s trials will discover that the Psalms are, as one commentator called them, “the soul’s medicine chest.” This book is a source of encouragement and hope, and it also provides an impetus for worship and prayer. With clarity and conviction, Alistair Begg applies the ancient words of the Psalmist to our contemporary situation and reveals their wisdom.
