At the literal center of every Bible is the book of Psalms.Just as the heart is the symbolic center of human emotion, the psalms containsome of the most emotional passages in all of scripture, from the heights ofjubilant praise to the depths of despair and mourning. All of us, to somedegree, can relate to the psalms.
A Psalm for Every Sigh is a collection ofobservations and musings on specific psalms. Each psalm relates to variousaspects of the human experience, from the peace and tranquility of Psalm 23, orthe penitence and confession of Psalm 32, to our awe and wonder at beholdingGod’s creation in Psalm 8. A Psalm for Every Sigh relates theemotions portrayed in each selected psalm to the emotions we experience in ourworld today. This is a valuable addition to any personal or group Bible study.
While much of the world is different today than in the timeof David and the other psalm writers, the joy, the pain, the anguish, and theexultation are still the same. That is why the psalms still carry such apowerful impact thousands of years after they were written.
