About-

All of our hearts, whether we know it or not, long to know the deep joy of possessing and experiencing the permanent and passionate favor of God. However, all of our hearts also experience the twisted desires of sin and the foolish bent towards trying to deal with it in our own strength, which usually means somehow trying to cover it up so others—especially God—won’t see. This two-step dance of struggling and covering leaves us exhausted and more hardened. Everyone who knows Christ knows about this tiring battle.

However, the gospel is so extravagant that even a king like David who sinned and tried to hide it can find immeasurable and unexpected grace that restores spiritual vitality and makes one a wise counselor of mercy to the surrounding community. Everyone who knows Christ also has this hope and is invited to experience again the superabundant grace found in this remarkably rich section of the Psalms.

This book invites you to step into a new gospel rhythm by exploring Saint Augustine’s favorite psalm, Psalm 32. By exploring this psalm, you’ll find the healing grace found in gospel brokenness.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Like a skilled surgeon, Clay Werner has carefully peeled away all the layers of our spiritual brokenness to get to the heart of the matter. . . . This is a must-read book for anyone looking to discover more gospel joy in the midst of life’s brokenness.”

—Julius J. Kim, Dean of Students and Professor of Practical Theology, Westminster Seminary California



“Only in the gospel could the words ‘deep joy’ and ‘brokenness’ be brought together. . . . A stimulating and thoroughly delightful read.”

—Fred G. Zaspel, author of Warfield on the Christian Life: Living in Light of the Gospel



“Clay Werner shows that what King David penned three millennia ago has tremendous explanatory power for our own experiences today. Centered around the finished work of Christ on our behalf, Werner unpacks this remarkable passage of Scripture and shows us the confidence we can have to take off the masks we wear to achieve our horizontal goals, and instead embrace true repentance.”

—Andrew Compton, Assistant Professor of Old Testament Studies, Mid-America Reformed Seminary
