Charles Bridges, one of the outstanding evangelical writers in the Church of England in the last century (19th) . . . The popularity of the work may be judged by the fact that it passed through at least twenty-four editions before his death in 1869.  It is pre-eminently a book of the heart.  In its original Preface, Bridges tells us that his main design in writing it was to "furnish a correct standard of Evangelical sincerity for the habitual scrutiny of his own heart", corresponding to "the several graces of the Christian system", which the Psalm itself describes . . . Bridges uses this Psalm, structured according to the letters of lthe Hebrew alphabet, to teach both the ABC of Christian experience and the maturity to which that experience must lead.
