What is the relevance and significance of the Psalms both to the New Testament and to our lives in the 21st Century? Richard Belcher helps you understand how all the psalms relate to Christ. Some have a direct relationship, but with others the link is not so evident. He carefully explains the biblical basis for his view and then how it works with different types of psalms.

The Psalter is a most important book of the Old Testament in terms of its testimony to Christ. Richard Belcher explores this theme against the background of his wide knowledge of modern psalm scholarship while successfully avoiding too much use of technical language. His love for Christ and Scripture are evident and he expounds psalms representative of particular genres, considering various ways each has been handled in terms of its application to Christ. He is convinced that every psalm contains a Messianic element, although not all will agree with his identification of this in every instance.

—Geoffrey Grogan, (1925-2011), Principal of Glasgow Bible College

Belcher successfully combines scholarship and devotion. His rigorous study of the psalms fuels passion for Christ. The reader cannot fail to derive much benefit from using this book as a guide to a Christian understanding and use of all Psalter.
