"THE PSALMS IN HUMAN LIFE by Rowland E. Prothero is a fascinating account of the varied ways in which the 150 Psalms have influenced, encouraged, challenged, and preserved God's people through the centuries. You will thank God for this book!"- David B. Calhoun"The Psalms are a mirror in which each man see the motions of his own soul. They express in exquisite words the kinship which every thoughtful human heart craves to find with a supreme, unchanging, loving God, who will be to him a protector, guardian, and friend. They utter the ordinary experiences, the familiar thoughts of men; but they give to these a width of range, an intensity, a depth, and an elevation which transcend the capacity of the most gifted.To collect together some of the countless instances in which the Psalms have guided, controlled, and sustained the lives of men and women in all ages of human history, and at all crises of their fate, is the purpose of this book." - the Author's IntroductionThis book is the perfect compliment to "The Psalms in History and Biography" by Ken, which we are also bringing back into print.
