The Psalms, the longest book in the Bible, has been described as the national hymn-book of the people of Israel in the Old Testament. Full of emotion, expressing the believer's response to various experiences and full of theology, these psalms give wonderful counsel to us today, both in our day-to-day life and in our worship. Roger Ellsworth competently leads us through the different kinds of psalms, first giving the big picture, then zooming in to look at the detail of some of the psalms in closer perspective.
“There are more prophecies of Christ in the psalms than any other book of the Old Testament!” (Page 14)
“teach us to value and practise both public worship and private devotion.” (Page 17)
“eter Jeffery well says: ‘Our problem is not really one of guidance, it is one of closeness to God.’2” (Page 47)
“The Book of Psalms, as is the case with every other book of the Bible, is a message about the Lord Jesus Christ” (Page 13)
“the righteous on his worst day is far better off than the unrighteous on his best day” (Page 23)
