Psalms: A life-changing encounter with God's Word from the book of (LifeChange)Product Description From

“Lord, teach us to pray.”
The book of Psalms is an answer to that prayer, leading those who study it into new emotional depth in their prayer and their daily lives.
Your prayers will be enriched and you will acquire a richer revelation of the God who invites you into a lifelong conversation.

From the Back Cover

The prayers of Psalms are deep with feelings of joy, fear, shame, sadness, and at times inconsolable rage. Our God in heaven awaits on His throne, pleased to receive the prayers of His children. Psalms is a study that helps broaden and deepen our understanding and experience of prayer by looking at the prayers of some of our spiritual ancestors: David, Moses, Asaph, and others. These prayers give us myriad examples of how we are to pray and what we are to pray for—examples God expects us to follow and emulate.

Series Copy:

Christians have a lifelong goal: to become like Christ. This involves change, and change isn’t always easy. But the more a person knows of God’s purposes for him or her, the more that person can experience His joy and participate in His plan.
The LifeChange series of Bible studies on books of the Bible can help you grow in Christ likeness through a life-changing encounter with God’s Word. You’ll benefit in these important ways:
* You’ll gain a firm understanding of the book—its historical context, purpose, structure, and meaning

* You’ll apply its powerful, relevant wisdom to needs and issues you’re currently working through

* You’ll acquire personal study skills and a thirst to return to the book and go deeper into its life-transforming truths.

My review : Psalms is a book in the Life Change series by NavPress it would be a great study guide for the individual person or would also be great used in a group setting. Since the layout of this book is very simple and straight forward I think it would be an easy study guide for the new christian or someone a little more seasoned in God's word who wants to do a more in depth study of the book of Psalms. 
I really like the clear concise way that each lesson is set up with questions  for thought and discussion as well as a section called which are questions that give way for more personal reflection. I would have to say that overall my favorite part of the lesson was the exercise called For Further Study,  in this section we are often given scripture to look up on our own that is usually outside the book of Psalms that ties into the lesson we are being taught, so when you finish a lesson in addition to learning more about Psalms you are actually directed to scripture that is very pertinent to what is being taught about Psalms.
I would recommend this book to anyone young or old who is looking for a simple straight forward way to study the book of Psalms.
