“ transforming power is part of the nature of God himself. It is what he is like!” (Page 308)

“Obedience is not the way Abraham entered the covenant but the way of life in which he embraced and made his own the blessings sovereignly pledged to him by God’s freely spoken word. The word of God explained the covenant to him; obedience to the word of God was the hallmark of the covenant man. Now think again about that abrupt reference to obeying with which the psalm ends. Abraham’s people were in the covenant of God not by effort or merit, but by gift and inheritance. Very well, then, let them show it by obeying the word God has spoken. So, for us too: Acts 5:32.” (Page 298)

“Bishop J. C. Ryle warns against the peril of self-satisfaction in just ‘moving the book mark on a page’. And it is a peril, to preen ourselves on keeping up the habit. Here is the antidote: has our Bible reading brought us nearer to our Lord? Have we actually spent time with him? Do we know him better than we did thirty minutes ago? ‘Preserving his testimonies’ is not putting them into the freezer! It is finding them a succulent meal whereby we ‘feed on his word’.” (Page 335)

“The holy God, who insists on his holiness as the standard, is also the forgiving God. This means that he always has other things in mind than just our sinfulness and unworthiness. According to 25:6–7, he can look back over our sin-stained past and forget what he has seen! But, compared with what he banishes from mind and memory, three things are permanent: ‘compassion’ (his ‘passionate love’), his solemnly ‘committed love’, and his ‘goodness’.” (Page 66)

J. Alec Motyer (1924–2016) was a renowned Old Testament pastor and scholar. With extensive experience in parish ministry, he was principal of Trinity College in Bristol, England, and was well known as a Bible expositor. His books include The Prophecy of Isaiah, and he was the Old Testament editor of The Bible Speaks Today commentary series.

    EXCELLENT indeed. Its a class in basic Hebrew definitions. He teaches, preaches thru out. His (Pause for Thought) after each day are WORTH the book alone. He explains what Psalms is all about. As well as how we apply it. Even lets ya know when a verse is unsure of definition. But lets see... I was truly blessed and taught to really treasure Psalms. Worth reading and re-reading. Which I have done. BUY IT!!
