Sing A New Song
A Woman’s Guide to the Psalms
Humans are relational, emotional being. Nothing reveals this more beautifully than the book of Psalms. As the psalmists pour out their hearts to God, they uncover the multifaceted character of the Lord almighty. They reveal his grace-filled plans for his people.
Sing a New Song offers a fresh look at the 150 psalms in the Bible, summarizing each psalm’s key themes, revealing how each fits in to both the Psalter as a whole and the rest of Scripture, and suggesting practical applications. Designed for use in personal study or in small groups, this book will invigorate your study of the the book of Psalms. Lydia Brownback enables you to see the steadfast love and faithfulness of God reflected on every page.
“What an exceptional book! First, its scope is different from other books in that it focuses exclusively on the psalms—all 150 of them. Second, its format is unique because the author presents each divinely inspired song with creative divisions such as ‘Musical Notes’ (how the psalm reveals God and his grace) and ‘Sing the Song’ (suggestions for personal application). If you’re a woman looking for a fresh approach to your reading of Scripture, you’ll find it in Lydia Brownback’s Sing a New Song.”

“I’m grateful for this call to read the book of Psalms straight through! Lydia Brownback has distilled the various themes and offers great encouragement for readers to delve into the prayers and praises of God’s people given in his Word. How good to be reminded that the psalms speak into all the moments of our lives, giving us a song for each one.”

“Not only do we need to embrace our emotional side as humans, but as Christians we want to learn a vocabulary that can make our feelings for God be contagious to others. Enter the psalms. God not only gave us a whole book of Scripture for learning the language of the heart, he also made it the longest book of all. Join me in making it a daily habit to open your Bible first to Psalms each morning, and let Lydia Brownback help your reading and meditation stay true and go deep. Sing a New Song is a valuable companion for a lifelong journey through the ups and downs, joys and griefs, praises and laments of God’s own inspired book for the Christian’s heart.”
