The book of Psalms, a collection of 150 Hebrew poems, has been the devotional favorite of God’s people down through the centuries. In the Psalms, believers expressed their hearts to God. And even though their circumstances differed so much from ours today, we can readily identify with their writings because they express man’s inmost feelings.The thirteen psalms selected for this ECS study course cover the believer’s relationship to God amid the circumstances of life. May your study of these psalms open your eyes to the character of God in relation to your own heart and life.

The book of Judges records the history of the nation of Israel in the Promised Land from the death of Joshua until just prior to the kingdom being established under King Saul. During this period, the nation failed God repeatedly, prompting Him to allow the pagan people in the land and surrounding areas to oppress them. Whenever Israel cried out to God for help, He would graciously raise up leaders to deliver them from their enemies and a time of peace would ensue—until the next time they failed.
The writer of Judges appears to have had a threefold purpose in recording this sad history:

Jonah is not only one of the most popular books in the Bible—it is also one of the most controversial. Its historical validity is questioned by skeptics and scholars alike.It is the actual account of a man who rebelled and was swallowed by a great fish. But it is so much more.
It is the story about someone like you and me. It is the story of Jonah's struggles, calling, disobedience, problems, and prayer life. It is the story of his encounter with God and of God's gracious dealings with him. It is the story of a man, and of an entire city, that got a second chance.
