Timothy Keller (With Kathy Keller) - My Rock my Refuge: A Year of Daily Devotions in the Psalms
Hodder and Stoughton £12.99 372 pages ISBN 978-1-976-473-61422-2
I was interested in this book for several reasons: I love the Psalms; as Martin Luther said: “All of Scripture speaks to us, the Psalms speak for us.” I also enjoy the format of a one page a day devotional that covers the whole year; it is a great way to keep a regular pattern of reading, prayer and reflection.
The third reason is that Tim Keller is one of my favourite authors. So what is there not to like about this book? Not much!
Each day there is a section from a psalm, a brief reflection and a prayer. Over a year the whole Book of Psalms is covered. Each day has just enough for a brief time of worship and reflection at the beginning or end of the day.
Keller explains that the creation of this book took three attempts; each time the material was trimmed and simplified to make it more accessible and readable. I am glad that the Kellers made the extra effort – it was well worth it as it makes this devotional more succinct and useful.
Why not treat yourself for one to use next year? While you are at it, buy a couple more, this book would make a great gift for Christmas, birthdays, or for a couple getting married.
