Discovering Delight: 31 Meditations on Loving God’s Law is available from Reformation Heritage Books or Amazon. Don’t believe the Amazon listing if it says it’s temporarily out of stock or that only one is left. You should be able to get all the copies you want.
And you’ll want several. Where else can you get such an affordable and meaningful Christmas gift for all the adults on your list? This book explores each of the twenty-two sections of Psalm 119 as well as other Old Testament and New Testament texts that speak about delighting in God and his word.
Cornelis Venema, president and professor of doctrinal studies at Mid-America Reformed Seminary, writes, “This collection of meditations on loving God’s law by Glenda Mathes is a jewel. Mathes’s primary aim is to encourage her readers to discover delight in God’s law and commandments, especially as this is expressed in Psalm 119. She fulfills this aim admirably in a series of brief meditations, each of which brims with helpful insights into the riches of the good gift of God’s holy law. While Mathes observes that loving law clashes in modern ears like clanging cymbals, her meditations invite the reader to joy in God and His good commandments.”
Aimee Byrd, author of Housewife Theologian and cohost of the Mortification of Spin podcast, writes, “Discovering Delight focuses on a timely subject, the relationship a Christian has with God’s law, in an accessible way. If you like the idea of daily devotionals but wish they went a little deeper, this is the book for you. Glenda Mathes offers a commendable style of commentary-meets-personal-devotional. She provides the context, meaning, and personal application of Scripture that will lead the reader to greater pleasure and true joy in God’s law.”
I’m thankful for those terrific endorsements, and I’m thankful to share with others the joy of finding delight in God and his word. Discovering Delight truly was a delight to write. May it ignite your delight in the Lord to his glory!
