Book Review – Discovering Delight (31 Meditations on Loving God’s Law) (23/12)

Do you have a habit of meditating on God’s Word? I’ll admit I do not have. But I do want find myself mediating on God’s word. But living in a fast-paced world it is often hard to sit down and think through what God’s word means and how it shapes our lives.

Discovering DelightThis is where this book will be helpful. Glenda Mathes has written a book filled with 31 meditations on the word of God. Mathes concentrates primarily on Psalm 119, but she also have some meditations on other psalms, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Romans and Revelation.

I found the book excels at it’s meditations on Psalm 119, it covers one stanza per chapter. Each chapter then expounds on the what text says, and how we should apply what the text says. Mathes also interacts with the Three Forms of Unity, Westminster Shorter Cathechism within her meditations on the verses, and is thoroughly reformed in her writing. Mathes also writes clearly and uses no technical jargon making this book suitable for young and old christians alike.

I would most recommend this book for christians as a one-month devotional, to spend one month really getting into the Word of God, meditating on His Word day or night. I foresee that this book will be utilise as a group or individual quiet time material by every church that wants to their congregation to learn or cultivate a habit of meditation on scripture.

Rating: 4 / 5
