Deep Calls To Deep

Spiritual Formation In The Hard Places Of Life

by Tony Horsfall


Price: £7.99
Publisher:BRF (Bible Reading Fellowship)
Published:February 2015

Another well thought out and insightful book from Tony Horsfall that blends consideration of the Psalms with stories from ordinary people that have been dealing with difficult situations and times in their lives that highlight the deeper reality of the psalms that reflect the deeper hardships, turmoils and woes of life. In turn he then reflects this outward to show how these things and dark times can be used to deepen our walk with God.

Given the inclusion of the Group Study material this book moves from just the realm of a good read for individuals to a book that serves a deeper purpose, one that can be used as a small group resource on the psalms of lamentation ... or as a resource maybe for a discipleship or healing group.

With well thought out biblical consideration on the psalms that ties in to the deeper personal realities of pain, loss, illness, depression and more this book really is a book that helps draws out the intent of God to walk with us, and how we can use these times to deepen our relationship with Him.
