Perhaps no portion of Scripture has meant more to the people of God nor spoken more to the experience of following God than the book of Psalms. This book is a vehicle of prayer and praise. The Psalms reveal the remarkable design of God, the searing honesty of the Psalmists, and the full-orbed spectrum of emotion. Ironside’s commentary works through Psalms 1–41, revealing the full range of the Psalmists words to God and God’s response.
Harry Allen Ironside, one of the twentieth century’s greatest preachers, was born in Toronto, Canada on October 14, 1876. Though his education stopped with grammar school, his fondness for reading and a retentive memory put his learning to use. His scholarship was recognized in academic circles when he received honorary degrees from Wheaton College and Bob Jones University and was invited as frequent lecturer at Dallas Theological Seminary. Dr. Ironside was appointed to the boards of numerous Bible institutes, seminaries, and Christian organizations. He also served as director of the Africa Inland Mission. Ironside preached widely throughout the United States and abroad. He served as pastor of Moody Memorial Church from 1930 to 1948, and during his lifetime, he preached more than 7,000 sermons to over 1.25 million listeners.
