About the Study
The book of Psalms is often quoted and cliched, but much less often contextualized. When we understand the Psalter relative to the circumstances in which it was written, we find a rich resource for God’s people. Through these prayers, God both speaks to us and models how we might speak back to Him. At its core, the book of Psalms is an instructional guide to a moment-by-moment walk with God through the world.
Through text and video teaching, Dr. Brian Russell introduces readers to Book 1 of the Psalms (Psalm 1-41) with humility and in anticipation of finding fresh astonishment and sustenance in these God-inspired prayers.
