9781572932746: Singing the Songs of the Brokenhearted: Psalms That Comfort and Mend the Soul

Nowhere are the personal depths of grief and the cry of the broken heart more clearly revealed than in the Psalms. Through their honest, gut-level responses to their real-life circumstances, the psalmists show joy, anger, bitterness, guilt, resentment, vindictiveness, and most of the other emotions all of us feel at some time in our lives. In looking carefully at Psalms 6, 12, 13, 22, 32, 39, 42, 56, 69, and 73, the author explains how they reveal the truth about our own grief, despair, defeat, guilt, fear, desperation, hate, stress, unfairness, and sin. “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted,” assures the psalmist. In a pain-filled world, only He can heal our broken hearts.

From the Back Cover:

“What becomes of the brokenhearted?”

Do you remember this now-classic music hit? Well, this question certainly long predates that 1960s hit, and is still around today as the heart-cry of every person who has been affected by the brutal experiences of life.

The writers of Scripture wrestled with these same experiences and resulting emotions, and nowhere are the personal depths of grief and the cries of the broken heart more clearly revealed than in the Psalms. In fact, no book of the Bible is more transparent than the Psalms, where the songwriters deal honestly with all of the events of life, including its darkest moments. Through their honest, gut-level responses to their real-life circumstances, the psalmists show what it means to live through the emotions all of us feel at some time in our lives.

In Singing the Songs of the Brokenhearted, Bible teacher and author Bill Crowder offers an insightful exploration of ten of these psalms, including:

Psalm 6: The Heart Broken by Grief                      Psalm 12: The Heart Broken by Despair

Psalm 13: The Heart Broken by Defeat                 Psalm 32: The Heart Broken by Guilt

Psalm 39: The Heart Broken by Fear                    Psalm 42: The Heart Broken by Desperation

Psalm 56: The Heart Broken by Hate                    Psalm 69: The Heart Broken by Stress

Psalm 73: The Heart Broken by Unfairness           Psalm 22: The Heart Broken by Sin

“The Lord is near to the brokenhearted,” assures the psalmist. In a pain-filled world, only He can heal our broken hearts.
