The influence of the Psalms is immense both in terms of the worship of God’s people and in the spiritual experience of countless individuals. This twentieth volume of the Believers Church Bible Commentary series aims to help readers find their way through the Psalms, encounter God, and be led into obedience and praise.
“James Waltner’s immense study of the Psalms merits close attention and wide use. It is a commentary that is well informed on critical issues but, more importantly, is alive and alert to theological, pastoral concerns. Waltner reads the Psalms in and for the church, and makes connections that will serve the pastoral, liturgical, devotional life of the church. We can be grateful for this important contribution.” – Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary
