A Book Review

It's time for another book review for Thomas Nelson Publishing.

The Word of Promise: The Gift of Psalms is a beautifully bound book. The paper is heavy and glossy with an elegant damask background. It includes excerpts from fifty of the best-loved Psalms and features corresponding devotionals by Lori Jones.

The Psalms that are included cover topics such as the righteousness and sovereignty of God, trusting in God, faith persevering in trials, repentance, and taking refuge in and finding joy in fellowship with the Lord. The devotional that accompanies each Psalm offers commentary on the context of the particular Psalm and practical application to everyday life. There is also a prayer to go along with each devotional and Psalm.

The book also comes with three CDs which contain dramatic readings of thirty selected Psalms by people like Jason Alexander, Gary Sinise, Marsha Gay Harden and Richard Dreyfuss. The CDs are part of The Word of Promise Old Testament Audio Bible by Carl Amari, CEO of the Falcon Picture Group.

This book would make a great personal devotional book or a lovely gift and the CDs would be great for someone who spends a lot of time in the car or who doesn’t like to read but might enjoy hearing the Word of God.
