Deep Calls To Deep

Full Product Description

Deep Calls to Deep by Tony Horsfall shows how the Psalms offer honest insights into the reality of life with God, reflecting every human emotion and situation.

Through looking at some of the Psalms written 'from the depths' you will understand more fully the way God works to shape your character and form the life of Christ within you during difficult times in life.

For many people the book of Psalms is their favourite part of the Bible, not because the psalms are necessarily easy to read, but because of the honest way in which they portray life with God.

In these songs of ancient Israel we encounter faith and despair, confidence and uncertainty, thanksgiving and complaint. Every human emotion is displayed here from the highest joy to the deepest sorrow. They reflect moments of courageous trust and miraculous deliverance alongside times of bewildering darkness and apparent abandonment. These songs of faith, written by a variety of individuals over the course of Israel's history, present us with an authentic portrayal of what it means to be a believer and to walk with God in the midst of the realities of life.

It is because of this that the Psalms can become a handbook on spiritual formation for us. As we glimpse the spiritual journey and inner life of the writers, we are enabled to understand better our own journeys with God. Here too we find words to use in prayer and worship as we too respond to the living God. The book of Psalms can inform our minds, direct our emotions, strengthen our wills and shape our behaviours.

I have written this book with a view to helping readers understand how God may be at work in us through our times of hardship and difficulty, and I have therefore focused my attention on some of the psalms of lament, psalms that are written 'out of the depths'. Alongside an exposition of a selection on lament psalms I have included stories from people known to me personally whose life experience has taken them into the depths. These are not 'happy ever after' stories, but living testimonies from ordinary people who, in the midst of their pain and confusion, doubt and fear, have been able to find God in a deeper way.

Deep Calls to Deep is written with a general Christian audience in mind, but I hope this book will especially help those who are 'passing through the valley' to find hope and meaning in their experiences. It should also be an encouragement for anyone who desires a deeper walk with God, and a resource for those who wish to accompany others on their journey: church leaders, counsellors and spiritual directors, pastoral carers, home group leaders, and those who preach and teach.
