Today is the day I officially release my first book.
About 3 ½ years ago, I began a personal study of Psalm 119. While I had read through it many times, it wasn’t until January of 2013 that I began to study it in any detail. Beyond a few verses here and there, I had not invested much effort into this chapter of Psalms.
Soon however, I began to see some patterns and common themes and I realized there is a wealth of spiritual wisdom in this chapter. I quickly came to the conclusion this chapter can help each of us better understand, believe, and trust the rest of Scripture.
I put together some teaching outlines and shared some of those with my small group from church and a men’s Bible study I lead. But I began to sense there was more to this study and through the encouragement of a great friend of mine, I began to assemble my notes into book form. The result is this 196 page, 13 chapter book.
It is about Psalm 119, but it’s not so much a verse-by-verse study as it is a concept-by-concept, or the term I use is “keys,” I see in Psalm 119 which help us with the rest of Scripture.
Here is a paragraph from chapter 1.
“The Bible makes claims about itself in a variety of places. But by far the longest and most in-depth section about itself is Psalm 119. If we want to know what to think about the Bible, we must go to Psalm 119. If we want to know what we can base our personal moral compass upon, we need to go to Psalm 119. If we want to know what the Old Testament prophets, Jesus Christ, Paul the Apostle, and the rest of the New Testament authors thought about God’s Word, we need to go to Psalm 119.”
The book is titled, Our Most Valuable Treasure and is only available via my website, shortbaldguy.com. Go to the “book” page to order a copy. Or just drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m asking for $12 for the book, plus it cost me $4 to mail one. But I don’t want the cost to hinder anyone from having a copy.
God’s Word is the most important and greatest treasure we have. Invest yourself into His Word.
Blessings My Friend,
