Discovering Delight (Review)
This review is for the book "Discovering Delight" by Glenda Mathes. This book contains 31 devotions which are centered around reflecting on God's law. Most of the devotions are focused on scripture in the book of Psalms. The author explains that she begins the book by examining five "law-exalting" psalms. She then breaks up Psalm 119 (the longest in the Bible) into 22 sections so it is easily explored and understood. Then there are also passages from Isaiah, Jeremiah, Romans and Revelation which show us prophecy in the Bible and how to delight in the law.
I really enjoyed this book. I love the Psalms, and I really do not ever tire of studying them. Each devotional section is quite short, so it is easy to complete during the day, but there is a lot of meat which is packed into the small reading. The author also includes a few discussion questions for each chapter, for further reflection.
I really enjoyed this book and would certainly recommend it to others.
Thank you to Cross Focused Reviews for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
