Editorial Reviews

Review

Five Stars By Readers' Favorite - Songs From the Heart is a delightful devotional study on the  Psalms. Dr. Tim Riordan takes you on a journey through the Psalms; however, this study is more than devotional, much more...Dr. Riordan engages his readers with personal stories and analogies. He breaks down the language and explains the vocabulary of the Psalms to enhance the understanding. By adding "Further Thought Questions" to the end of each chapter, he encourages the reader into a deeper personal study...What a perfect conclusion to a great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Speaking to God through the Psalms November 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I always enjoyed reading the Psalms, but never with the same passion as some of my friends. Then one line in Riordan’s book made me understand what I’d been missing. Riordan said, “while many books [of the Bible] speak about God, the Psalms speak to God.” Now, the idea of praying Psalms and using them in my personal worship time, makes more sense.

After a sweet fictional story about how Jews might have used the Psalms in everyday life, Riordan shared interesting history about the authorship and poetic structure of the Psalms. Then he went into application, taking 33 specific Psalms and sharing how they might enrich our relationship with God. Several well thought out questions at the end of each chapter encourage further meditation and application.

Riordan’s writing style is just the right balance of scholar and approachable friend, making the book easy to read, yet weighty enough to satisfy the Bible student in us. I will definitely read the Psalms with renewed enthusiasm, looking for ways they might help me speak to God when my own words seem inadequate and looking for new insights into deepening my worship.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Story of Joy, Hope and Deliverance June 11, 2014
By Kim
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
“Songs From the Heart” is such a great book. I coincidentally purchased the book at the beginning of my fast which was incredibly fortuitous! It has helped me in directing my thoughts to the many attributes of God which has enhanced my personal time with God each day. I will never look at the Psalms in the same way. Dr. Tim Riordan’s writing style is that of a personal teacher. Although the book holds such powerful spiritual truths, it is an easy read. The reflection questions and suggested next steps at the end of each chapter helped to make the Psalms personal to me. I started recommending this book to all of my friends within hours of reading it -- it is that good! I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to enrich their time with the Most High God.

5.0 out of 5 stars Each page has a pearl. June 5, 2014
Format:Paperback
I feel that this book was truly inspired by God. It has helped me so much in walking through my daily life as a Christian. It could be used as a daily Bible study or even as a small group study. From the oldest person to the youngest reader, it is sure to "open the eyes of your heart". You can read it straight through or read the Chapter in Psalms and then read the chapter in the book. Your Bible is definitely the companion Book to have handy. I cannot emphasize enough how much I have actually changed in my feelings toward King David from reading this book. God bless Dr. Riordan as he continues to write.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Devotion... Devoted to Psalms June 5, 2014
Format:Paperback
If you are looking for a companion to your personal devotion and reading of the Book of Psalms from the Bible, pick up this book. Dr. Riordan's understanding and perspective gives new insight to those of us who have just read Psalms in the "regular" way. It's great to have a book like Songs From The Heart... easy and interesting to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lifestyle of Worship June 4, 2014
By F.S.
Format:Paperback
This book, "Songs from the Heart", is a great reminder of what the Psalms are all about, and that is a lifestyle of worship of our great God and King. I would recommend this book to anyone that has a heart to truly live a daily life of worship that exalts the Lord and to be encouraged to know Him more intimately.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great daily devotion resource August 8, 2014
By SB
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was definitely an inspiration to my summer! It starts out with a fictitious story of 2 boys growing up in Jewish culture which helped to bring a whole new perspective to the Psalms. The next chapter was educational by pointing out the different types of Jewish poetry and how they were used in worship years ago. This really helped to put what followed in to context. Each of the remaining chapters focuses on one chapter from the book of Psalms. In these chapters the author really dissects the meanings behind what is written and wraps it up with thoughts of application. The chapters are short making if perfect for a personal devotion resource. He helped me develop a whole new understanding of the Psalms, how it was written and how to incorporate it into a life of worship.
