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.
Roger Ellsworth has served as Pastor of Immanuel Baptist Church, Benton, Illinois, since 1988. He is the author of over eighteen books. He has also served as President of the Illinois Baptist State Association and as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of South Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary.
