By reading one page each day, along with the assigned Psalm text from the Bible, readers will be comforted and strengthened as they gain a better understanding of the concerns and themes of the psalmists of old as well as come to recognize the various forms of the Psalms. Each meditation concludes with a prayer that invites readers to add their own petitions. A glossary, index, and a list of books for further reading are included.
