Awesome scholarship... together with a passion for hearing and passing on in a thoroughly down-to-earth style what God is saying to His church today.

Michael Wilcock, Formerly Director of Pastoral Studies at Trinity College, Bristol & Vicar of St Nicholas, Durham

Always fresh, always insightful. Dale Ralph Davis shows you what's there and leaves you wondering why you didn't see it before!

Colin S. Smith, Senior Pastor, The Orchard, Arlington Heights, Illinois and President, Unlocking the Bible

Dale Ralph Davis has provided another faithful, lively and refreshing set of expositions. All Christians will benefit from this book and I hope it is read widely.

Sam Allberry, Assistant Pastor, St Marys, Maidenhead and Author of Is God Anti-Gay?

Sharp, personal and funny illustrations, a vital, earnest and readable style, deep, nourishing, practical application built on a foundation of passionately thorough biblical, theological and linguistic scholarship.

Colin Buchanan, Christian Children's Recording artist and author, Sydney, Australia

Thank you Dr. Davis, for "yielding to the temptation" to continue what you began with Psalm 1-12.

Albert N. Martin, Served as pastor of Trinity Baptist Church, Montville, New Jersey for over forty years and taught Pastoral Theology at the Trinity Ministerial Academy


Dale Ralph Davis plunges right into the middle of King David's hard times with a study that is resonant for our lives. King David's faith brought him through the muddy parts of life. Will we find that depression is our final response to a hard path? Will faith carry us across?
Find the encouragement that Psalms 13-24 hold for the Scripture-filled life.

... another excellent book on a part of the Old Testament by Dale Ralph Davis... he has an easy, almost conversational style, in which he exegetes the text and deals with the translation of key words without getting bogged down. Five star!

Grace Magazine

True worship is, as Dale Ralph Davis puts it in this brilliantly helpful book on Psalms 13-24, 'from the top down'. So the same has to be true of our devotional reading of God's word. Our true comfort, our deep encouragement to persevere, our solid growth in trust amidst the mayhem of life all start with God as he has spoken in his word. It's this capacity to draw fresh devotional truths from the deep well of the biblical text that is the author's great gift. Here is a fellow-traveller who is realistic and properly grounded on the same planet that the rest of us occupy, refreshing us along God's way with God's revealed and written truth. So the author's profound understanding of what the text of the Psalms means leads to profound help with what the Psalms really do mean for you. Dale Ralph Davis has these two things the right way round. This book is an absolute gem!

Dominic Smart, Author and conference speaker

Dale Ralph Davis is among the finest expositors of the Old Testament alive today. His style is unique and his content infectious. A pastor at heart, his insights are always governed by an absolute loyalty to the text, a belief that the Bible was written for today as much as yesterday, and a desire to encourage his readers to fall in love with Scripture and to trust it. These expositions of Psalms 13-24 tantalizingly suggest there may be further volumes given the enormous success of the first set (Ps. 1-12). What a treasure that would be! In the meantime, these expositions are pure gold.

Derek Thomas, Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina
