Preaching Christ from Psalms: Foundations for Expository Sermons in the Christian Year


Eerdmans 2016

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


In this final volume of his series on preaching Christ from the Old Testament, Sidney Greidanus offers expert guidance for busy pastors on preaching Christ from Psalms.

Beginning with a general introduction on how pastors can interpret and preach from the biblical psalms—and why they should—Greidanus proceeds by discussing twenty-two psalms in the Revised Common Lectionary, Year A, supplying the building blocks necessary to preach from Psalms at Christmas, Easter, Pentecost, and other major days and seasons of the church year. In addition to laying out basic homiletical-theological approaches suitable for each selected psalm, these chapters also provide verse-by-verse exposition, bridges to Christ in the New Testament, and ideas for placing the psalmist’s words into contemporary context.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.

Praise for the Print Edition

No one has been more influential in this generation of preachers, and in my life personally, than Sidney Greidanus on the necessity of Christ’s purposes pervading all biblical exposition. I welcome this latest contribution to his extensive body of work that has so blessed Christ’s church.

—Bryan Chapell, Grace Presbyterian Church, Peoria, IL

The Lord is accomplishing a great work of gospel resurgence in our generation. Sidney Greidanus in particular has contributed by helping us pastors preach the Christian gospel accurately and confidently from the entire Bible. Now Greidanus has increased our debt of gratitude with Preaching Christ from Psalms. I expect this book to have a lasting impact not only because of the perennial appeal of the Psalms but also because of the insightful ways Greidanus connects the Psalms with Jesus and his gospel.

—Ray Ortlund, Immanuel Church, Nashville, TN

Greidanus offers exegetical and literary observations, theological analysis, and expository material that will be a treasure chest of valuable content for any preacher or teacher. He has given yet another gift to his colleagues in the church through this book that will find a valued place on the shelf of many a preacher.

—Michael Duduit, Preaching magazine

I have long admired Sidney Greidanus’s writing on preaching from the Old Testament. The Old Testament is often neglected in the pulpit because many think it to be irrelevant to Christians. In this book Greidanus reveals the richness of the Psalms and helps us discover their theological and Christological significance.

—Tremper Longman III, Westmont College
