This is a beautiful hardback devotional book on a few of the psalms, 34 devotions in all. Matt Searles asks the question, ‘What can miserable Christians sing?’ and writes these devotions to accompany his album of songs Tumbling Sky: Psalms for Weary Souls. The devotions start with the psalms of lament and move through to the praise psalms and as such brings back an emphasis that seems to have been lost in our contemporary church life. The author wrote his album of songs when he was passing through a deep valley, and that gives the album and the devotional greater authenticity. ‘God says weeping is right, but he also says, there is hope’. There is depth in these devotionals, though short, and that is a great antidote to the ‘promise box’ approach of using the Bible that is often taken in times of pain and suffering. Pastors should buy ten of these books and give them out on pastoral visits.
