I realized in my recent post on Kidner’s Psalms books that I had forgotten to review Tim Keller’s The Songs of Jesus: A Year of Daily Devotions in the Psalms. That’s unfortunate, because I loved the book and would highly recommend it.
Keller writes in a very accessible and yet deep way, and the short expositions in this book are uniformly thought-provoking while still being easy to read in a short sitting. Designed as a daily devotional, the book covers a passage from the Psalms each day, with many Psalms taking more than one day to fill the year.
I got so much from this volume, and felt like it really jump started my practice of reading/praying through the Psalms each year. The book makes a particularly great companion to Keller’s book on prayer, in which he goes into more detail about how and why to pray with the Psalms. In fact, I think you’d get more out of either book by reading them together.
If you’re looking for a great daily devotional, I’d recommend The Songs of Jesus. It has a great balance of depth and readability that make it a solid choice for all sorts of readers.
