Instant coffee and stalactites

Well if you’re only going to make blog posts every few months you need a catchy title! It is also an example of one of the wonderful images that Alec Motyer uses in his fabulous little volume ‘Journey: Psalms for pilgrim people.’

I have been using this in my devotional time for the last week or so and it is a gem of a book. Motyer walks you through the Psalms of Ascent and combines a scholar’s eye for detail with an artist’s creative use of language. Motyer is a brilliant communicator and the whole thing oozes the warm faith of its author.

I love spending time in the Psalms, and just like his earlier volume Treasures of the King on Psalms from the life of David, this is a wonderful companion to help you savour their nourishment.
