David Roper: About the Author
David H. Roper was a pastor for more than 30 years and now directs Idaho Mountain Ministries, a retreat dedicated to the encouragement of pastoral couples. He enjoys fishing, hiking, and being stream-side with his wife, Carolyn. His favorite fictional character is Reepicheep, the tough little mouse that is the soul of courage in C. S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia. His favorite biblical character is Caleb—that rugged old saint who never retired, but who died climbing. [bio from Our Daily Bread]

Book Review of Walking in Glory and Grace
I have always loved diving into the Psalms of David however I found that David Roper’s Walking in Grace and Glory is geared more towards the first time reader who has never spent much time in the Psalms or Old Testament for that matter. Those who have grown up in the church and done studies on the Psalms will likely find this book to be a disappointment.
To give some perspective, you can expect something similar to the short devotionals you get from Our Daily Bread. If you are a fan of such devotionals, this might be just the book for you. If however you are looking for something with more meat and substance, pass and consider checking out something else like C.S. Lewis’ Reflections on the Psalms.
Oddly enough, there is no Kindle or e-book version for those readers on the go.
And personally I think the price for this devotional is a bit high. Hopefully the publishers will come up with a Kindle version at a more economical price.
My thanks to NetGalley for the review copy. All opinions are my own.
