Psalms is the longest book in the Bible, and there are all kinds of subjects contained in it. Praise, lament, joy, and prayers or thanksgiving are all found in within the chapters. Understanding the reasons each psalm was written will give you a better grasp of what they mean to you. The Psalms- Everyday Bible Commentary will do just that.
Robert L. Alden explains each Psalm, the background and context of it, and how that fits with us today. He uses everyday language that all sorts of people can understand. This makes the commentary a great accessory for daily Bible study, as well preparing for lessons. Each chapter is presented in a straight-forward way that gives you a good overview of what you’re reading. There is plenty of information, but it isn’t so much that you feel overwhelmed.
I received a free copy of this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
