Psalms, Volume 1: Psalms 1-41 (Paperback)
"No matter how familiar you may be with the Psalms, an incredible amount of information and insight can be gained through this commentary."--Christian Retailing. Whether you're a serious Bible student probing through Psalm 19 or a first-time reader inspired by the promise of Psalm 23, this first volume on the book of Psalms explores each of the first forty-one psalms, uncovering deep reflections, wisdom for living, and verses of praise, confidence, and repentance. Psalm 1 stresses the importance of God's guidance in one's life. Psalm 16 foretells Jesus' resurrection, a startling and impressive declaration for the time. Psalm 23 portrays life as a pilgrimage, where God is provider, comforter, and friend. This expositional commentary on one of the Bible's most popular books combines careful scholarship and clear communication in a verse-by-verse and section-by-section reading of the biblical text. Integrating thoughtful interpretation with contemporary insight for daily living, James Montgomery Boice explains the meaning of the text and relates the text's concerns to the church, Christianity, and the world in which we live.
