Description

First in a series of looking at culture & context of preaching & teaching. Bible Delight unlocks Psalm 119 and explains - How to be delighted in the BibleHow to get your bearings in the longest psalmWhat each of the 22 sections meansWhat your reaction should be through Personal Response Questions "This is the first in a series of books that looks at the culture and context of preaching and teaching God's Word. We need help not just in 'how to preach Bible books', but clarity on the point and purpose of preaching and teaching. The books in this series will be short and accessible, ideal for personal use, group study or for training. Christopher Ash's book is an excellent foundation for the series. It gets us to the heart of our motivation to preach and teach. In his own words: 'we preach out of Bible delight in our own hearts and for Bible delight in our hearer's souls.' Christopher's Bible material is Psalm 119 - the great psalm of Bible delight! "While the primary purpose of the book is to stimulate Bible delight in teachers and hearers of God's Word, the book would be ideal guide to tackling a preaching or teaching series on Psalm 119." David Jackman & Robin Sydserffshow more

Review quote

It has been wisely said that the Psalter is a spiritual cardiograph. The more I am at home in the Psalms, the healthier my spiritual condition. This is especially true of Psalm 119. The way we are to delight in the Lord and feed on Him, is to delight in, and feed on His Word. The heart-beat of spiritual contentment is to cry with the Psalmist - "Oh, how I love your law." It is always a wonderful tonic when a fairly familiar passage of the Bible is faithfully taught and explained with fresh understanding and application. Christopher Ash opens up Psalm 119 so that heart, mind and will are touched with the result, which he intends, that we can understand it, feel it and sing it. I simply loved "Bible Delight" and it will enrich Quiet Times much more than the 22 days suggested. Jonathan Fletcher (Minister, Emmanuel Church, Wimbledon, London)show more

For the busy, sometime burdened, Christian worker, ever giving out, here is proper nourishment for the soul. I suggest a section a day! For me it is marvellously real and refreshing. ~ Dick Lucas (Formerly Rector of St Helen's Bishopsgate, London)Christopher Ash opens up Psalm 119 so that heart, mind and will are touched with the result, which he intends, that we can understand it, feel it and sing it.
