Perhaps more clearly than any other part of the biblical canon, the book of Psalms includes human words directed to God. Yet, through the Holy Spirit, these honest, sometimes brutal words return to us as the Word of God. Their agonies and exaltations reflect more than the human condition in which they were created. Within the context of the canonical Psalter, they become the source of divine guidance, challenge, confrontation, and comfort. It is possible, however, to misapply them. How can we use the book of Psalms in a way that faithfully connects God’s meaning in them and his intentions for them with our circumstances today?
In continuity with Gerald Wilson’s work in Psalms, Volume 1, Dennis Tucker and Jamie Grant reveal the links between the Bible and our present times. While they consider each psalm independently, they go much further, examining whole groups of psalms and, ultimately, the entire Psalter, seeking its purpose and use for the days of Hebrew temple worship through church history. In so doing, the authors open our eyes to ageless truths for our twenty-first-century lives.
