A trial lawyer by trade, a Christian by heart―author Mark Lanier has trained in biblical languages and devoted his life to studying and living the Bible. Living daily with the tension between the demands of his career and the desire for a godly life, Lanier recognizes the importance and challenge of finding daily time to spend in God’s Word. He credits the Psalms in particular for his continued growth in faith, obedience, wisdom, and understanding.
In Psalms for Living, Lanier shares a year’s worth of devotionals gathered over a lifetime of walking with the Lord. For each day of the year, Lanier reflects on the words of the Psalter, relates them back to the struggles facing Christians today, and concludes with a prayer connected to the day’s insights. His engagement with the Psalms offers fellow Christians the opportunity to receive the gifts of grace and guidance that come from daily immersion in scripture.
