Description


A reflective and uplifting study of the Book of Psalms, interspersed with a daily journal through the spring and summer of 2020 as the coronavirus pandemic took hold of the UK.

In response to the dramatic changes and restrictions on our lives caused by the outbreak and spread of the virus, from 15th March 2020, and for 150 days thereafter, John Nug e studied one psalm per day, reflecting on both their origins and meaning for the people who wrote them and their relevance to our lives today. A Psalm a Day brings these short commentaries together, guiding the reader through each passage of the Psalter with a daily meditation. While the Book of Psalms-a collection of songs, prayers and meditations on man's relationship with God-has inspired and comforted the faithful for over 2,000 years, revisiting this Old Testament book during the first of the UK's lockdowns provided much hope and focus for Nug e, and for fellow members of his bible study group.

Alongside these analyses of the psalms, each day is marked with a diary entry taking the reader through the first five months of change as COVID-19 struck. Featuring both his personal day-to-day life and that of the country as a whole, Nug e's journal provides a fascinating snapshot of this historic period of time.

Written in and clear and simple style, A Psalm a Day can be read in sequence or used as a book of reference and inspiration in conjunction with the Book of Psalms-one of the best-loved books of the Bible, as fresh and fitting today as the day the psalms in it were first written.

Perfect for those looking to draw more meaning from life, those on a spiritual or religious path, and those searching for solace in a time of uncertainty and upheaval.
