My Bible Class Was Disappointed Nov 15, 2000
As a pastor, I am very interested in theology but sometimes I have trouble applying it to the daily lives of my parishoners. I bought this book hoping it would help bridge that gap.
When the book arrived, I was disappointed because it contained very little background information. Lucado does not help the reader understand what each Psalm meant in its original context.
Instead, he encourages the reader to look inward and focus on his/her own experience with the text. Much of the book consists of pages that look like notebook paper where the reader can fill in his/her thoughts.
Despite my reservations, I decided to try it out with my Wednesday morning Bible study. Several members commented they "didn't get anything out of it" so I started writing my own my Bible study using Craigie's commentary on the Psalms (published by WORD.)
By the way, Craigie's commentary is excellent.
Great Study Jul 18, 2000
This is the first of Lucado's studies that we have used. This book rocks. I am most impressed by the diversity of disciplines utilized as Lucado helps us look at the Psalms. As believers, the format of the book encourages us to read, pray, journal, contemplate and listen for God's voice on a weekly basis. The topics covered are easily accessible to Christian and PreChristian alike. Our small group has been greatly helped by this understandable, yet weighty study.
