The Psalms capture our emotions in a unique way, but they’re not limited to one book of the Bible. Study more sacred songs that appear from Exodus to Revelation.

Explore the beauty and delight of the psalms that appear throughout the Bible. You’ll learn about songs of lament and praise as you immerse yourself in the lesser-known poems of Scripture, written by people of faith, like Moses, Esther, Mary, and more.

Each psalm in this book includes a reflection, a thought-provoking question, and a blessing, giving you the chance to understand and appreciate these expressions of worship in a fresh, new way.

In Beyond Psalm 150, you’ll:

  • Discover sixty-seven songs of worship that don’t appear in the book of Psalms
  • Explore how you can apply these words to your life today
  • Develop insights about each psalm in the context of the story
  • Dive deeper into the Word to better understand each song
  • Explore Biblical worship songs throughout the Old and New Testament

Perfect for your personal study time or small group, Beyond Psalm 150 will help you to understand these beautiful songs of praise as you worship a mighty God.

Read the Bible in 2022

Daily Scripture Reading Guides Available Now from ABibleADay

Every year I intentionally explore the Bible, reading a few chapters each day. Some years I focus on the New Testament and other years, the Old Testament, but usually I read the entire Bible in a year.

Will you join me this year?

To guide us, the 2022 Bible reading guides are now available. Get your 2022 Bible reading plan today.

Chronological Bible Reading Guide

New last year was a chronological Bible reading plan. This year it’s tweaked and improved, based on feedback from the inaugural offering.

Though a comprehensive chronological reading of the Bible requires a lot of details that won’t fit on a concise handout, it is possible to make an approximate chronological reading guide by putting the books of the Bible in order.

Following this Bible reading plan only takes 12 to 15 minutes a day. And each Tuesday throughout 2022, I’ll blog about a passage from that day’s reading.

Download your own chronological 2021 Bible reading guide.

Other Reading Options

If reading the entire Bible in a year seems too big of a task, scale back to a more manageable goal. I have a series of other Bible reading plans to guide you. Pick the one that works for you:

Form a habit to read the Bible. Download your 2022 Bible reading plan today and be ready to start reading this January.

Book Release: Love Is Patient

Like many churches today, the Corinthian church had issues

Lots of them.

What can we learn from this young spiritual community to strengthen our faith and more fully follow Jesus?

Paul sent his two longest letters to this fledgling congregation in Corinth. Though written for them 2,000 years ago, his words provide a profound message that still applies to us now, if only we’re willing to explore it.

Through this devotional Bible study, we’ll examine Paul’s guidance to this struggling church. In this insightful exploration of 1 and 2 Corinthians, we’ll discern how his training to them two millennia ago can best guide us today.

In Love Is Patient, lifetime student of the Bible and founder of the ABibleADay website, Peter DeHaan, PhD, explores Paul’s impassioned instructions to his beloved flock so that they can reach their full potential.

In Love Is Patient we’ll explore Paul’s vital teaching to discover:

  • What true love really is
  • Why Paul has the audacity to say follow him (instead of Jesus)
  • The realities of baby Christians and the need to feed ourselves
  • Essential lessons about spiritual gifts and meeting together
  • What it means to not be yoked with unbelievers

Also gain fresh insight into Paul’s thorn in the flesh, greeting one another with a holy kiss, and guarding against those who peddle God for profit.

Love Is Patient will inspire you to apply biblical truth to your daily life, move ideas into action, and mature in your Christian walk.

Get your copy of Love Is Patient and watch your relationship with Jesus grow.

Love is Patient is book 7 in the Dear Theophilus series.

With many having endured a season of attending church over the internet, they want to put it behind them. They desire to return to in-person gatherings.

In Visiting Online Church, you’ll discover:

  • The two programming formats for digital church and how they differ.
  • How to engage people from a distance and not push them away.
  • The new front door to church and why it’s essential.
  • Tips to follow and traps to avoid.
  • The forgotten people on the fringes who can’t or won’t attend in person.

Then contemplate over three dozen key online church principles—illustrated through real-world examples—that can guide your internet content to meet viewer needs and promote participation to spur spiritual growth.

An advocate for significant church experiences, Peter DeHaan, PhD champions meaningful Christian community. And this doesn’t only apply to in person gatherings. Providing endearing online experiences is just as important, perhaps even more so.

Create a virtual church that matters to your congregation and will interest visitors and seekers alike.

Interview of Peter DeHaan about Women of the Bible

Gabe Hartfield Interviews Author Peter DeHaan

My friend Gabe Hartfield recently interviewed me on Facebook Live about my book Women of the Bible. Gabe works with Intervarsity at Davenport University in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Check out this Women of the Bible interview.

I’m a writer for a reason, preferring to avoid cameras and microphones, but Gabe and I had a great time talking about the Women in the Bible, as well as a few related topics too.

Listen to this live recording of our discussion.

I hope you enjoyed this this conversation about the amazing women in the Bible.

Here’s some of info from the back cover of the book:

“The Bible has story after story about fascinating women. They’re more nuanced than men, have profound insights people often overlook, and can teach wisdom that everyone needs to hear.

“Ideal for personal reflection or group Bible study, Women of the Bible is an excellent read with stimulating stories that are interesting, informative, and entertaining.

“As a bonus, each woman’s story ends with thought-provoking questions for private introspection or group discussion. Then dig deeper by examining related Bible passages to expand your understanding.

“It’s time for a change. It’s time for a fresh perspective. It’s time for every woman—and man—to discover powerful, life-changing truths from Women of the Bible.”

Learn about other biblical women in Women of the Bible, available in e-book, paperback, hardcover, and audiobook.
