Overview

The book of Psalms is a favorite of Christians, even though we frequently read it in portions and pieces, hopscotch through the familiar, and avoid the odd, the unpleasant, and the difficult. But though the individual psalms arose from an assortment of times, experiences, and settings, the book of Psalms is composed in a deliberate pattern, not as a random anthology. The meaning of the Psalms is discovered in this pattern and order.

Michael Wilcock has written a sort of travel guide to the Psalms. In his previous book, The Message of Psalms 1–72, he invited us to begin our journey through the gateway of Psalms 1 and 2, with their summons to obedience. In this sequel, he ends with Psalm 150, singing its song of praise. In between, we pass through all the “yes, buts” of faith—the conflicts, the burdens, the mysteries, and the sufferings of life. In these laments and praises, hymns and liturgies, the Bible continues to speak clearly today.

Volume 2, The Message of Psalms 73–150, picks up where he left off and Wilcock guides his readers through all the “yes, buts” of faith—the conflicts, the burdens, the mysteries, and the sufferings of life. In these laments and praises, hymns and liturgies, the Bible continues to speak clearly today, concluding with Psalm 150, singing its song of praise.
