9780852347034: Psalm 119 for Life

Jonathan Edwards, the well-known preacher of the eighteenth-century Great Awakening', wrote, I know of no part of the Holy Scriptures where the nature and evidences of true and sincere godliness are so fully and largely insisted on and delineated as in the 119th Psalm.'

The sufficiency of the Word of God for the whole life of the church of the Lord Jesus Christ and of the individual Christian believer is a vital matter, and never more so than today. In many strands of contemporary Christianity the wide gap between God's revealed truth and man's religions is being rapidly closed. This convergence is traceable in no small measure to the way in which the church (unlike the psalmist) has moved Holy Scripture to the margins of its own confession and proclamation, worship and witness.

The message of this psalm is therefore one of pressing relevance and every Christian should give it serious and regular attention. The truths and convictions which formed the mind-set of the psalmist, as he looked upward to the Lord and forward to the coming of the Messiah, should characterize every Christian as he or she looks back to the first coming of Jesus Christ and forward to his return.

Review:

Psalm 119 is often daunting because of its length and apparent repetitiveness. Hywel Jones' careful study shows us the intricate and beautiful way in which the Psalmist celebrates the Word of God and deepens our understanding of it. This book will be a great blessing and help to all who read. It stimulates the mind and moves the heart. --W. Robert Godfrey, President and Professor of Church History, Westminster Seminary California

'The Great Psalm' (Psalm 119) was written for the whole of life. It therefore takes a whole lifetime to be equipped to expound it well and apply it wisely. Enter Dr. Hywel Jones--teacher, author, pastor--much loved by his seminary students and colleagues, and esteemed by those who are privileged to be among his friends. In his hands the precious jewels are well mined. This beautiful exposition comes from a lifetime of taking in and giving out God's Word. Its hallmark is the careful, thoughtful, and richly spiritual unfolding of divine wisdom. Both a pleasure to read, and a treasure to share. --Sinclair B Ferguson, The First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina

The announcement that Hywel Jones is expounding God's Word in devotions at our seminary arouses special interest and expectation. Although he possesses admirable personal qualities, it is his consistent attention to the grain of each passage that is so rewarding. If Psalm 119 celebrates God's Word, then I can think of no better celebrant than Hywel Jones. --Michael Horton, Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California
