Davis, Dale Ralph

Each chapter begins with Davis’ own translation of the Psalm from the Hebrew, before delving into his exposition. For those who enjoyed Davis’ previous works, this will not disappoint. For those who are unfamiliar with his writings, allow this book to direct your eyes to the God of the psalmist and find your exceeding joy in him.

All of God’s Word is food for our souls and Dr. Davis is not afraid to give it to us. In ‘My Exceeding Joy’, this beloved expositor continues to show us in the Psalms how the Word is made fresh through the work and personality of an unashamed and approved workman. -Brent Sadler, Army Chaplain, 7th Special Forces Group, Florida
This expository pilgrimage through the Psalms continues to delight, instruct, refresh and nourish our hearts. Above all else, Dr Davis’s own delight in God, evident on every page, leads us to his altar and displays his love and glory in ways that make us stop and pray and praise. -David Gibson, Minister, Trinity Church, Aberdeen
Dale Ralph Davis belongs to the rarest tribe of commentators: clearly communicating biblical truth with simultaneous theological depth and engaging devotional impact. The genuine love for Yahweh which oozes from these pages—not overly demonstrative but irresistibly contagious—enables readers to share both that same love and the Exceeding Joy it produces. -Mike Biggs, Senior Pastor, Christ the King Presbyterian Church, Norman, Oklahoma
