"David Tensen has given us a prophetic Psalter apropos for these swirling times--a warm fire and bright light."Bradley Jersak - Author of A More Christlike God
"Raw. Authentic. Clever. As I read "The Wrestle," I realised the reflections of what I thought was David's life turned out to be my own. A great companion for those looking to find their true self."James Thompson - Compassion International. Australia
