Book Description, Modified from Goodreads:
In this inspiring devotional, you'll find daily encouragement for the challenges you face in life. Through five devotionals for each of the twenty-two sections in Psalm 119, you'll gain fresh insights into how God's word both challenges and consoles.

You can download twenty-two songs that were written for each section (available on iTunes). These songs will help you to memorize this entire psalm by drawing on the power of words and music to lock God's truth in your mind and heart.

My Review:
The Psalm 119 Experience is a devotional that focused on Psalm 119. It's a devotional that deepens your relationship with and devotion to God. The psalm has 22 sections, so Kramp broke his devotional into 22 chapters. Each chapter had 5 days of devotional thoughts and ended with the "song version" of that section of verses which he wrote to help memorize the words.

Each daily entry began with a verse or two from the psalm. He then dug into the meanings and insights of verses. He brought in verses from other parts of the Bible that affirm the words or that expand upon them. You get daily doses of theologically-solid truth about God and life. People who regularly read through the Bible will be reminded of important truths, while those less familiar with the Bible will see how certain important themes repeat throughout the Bible.

I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys devotionals. It only took a few minutes to read a daily entry. Then, hopefully, you'll think upon the points he brought up as you go throughout your day.

If you've read this book, what do you think about it? I'd be honored if you wrote your own opinion of the book in the comments.
