Reviews - What do customers think about War Psalms of the Prince of Peace: Lessons from the Imprecatory Psalms?

A must for your growth in Grace and the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Nov 8, 2007
This book is a great help to all who believe in the verbal inspiration of Scripture and that God is love, but are puzzled by the strong language of the imprecatory Psalms. The book is giving me a better and deeper understanding of God's Word.
This book is a blessing  Feb 21, 2006
Thank you, James E. Adams, even though I had never heard of you before. I found your book by chance. By chance? No way! The Lord slipped War Psalms of the Prince of Peace into my hand, and then into my heart. Yes, of course I agree with Paul that all of Scripture is God-breathed and useful, but up until I read War Psalms I steered clear of those difficult Imprecatory Psalms. You know the kind: the ones that tend to say things like, "Let his days be few; and let another take his office. Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow" (Ps. 109:8-9). Or, "Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones" (Ps. 137:9). And then along comes War Psalms and, bingo-why-hadn't-I-thought-of it before, those Psalms became wonderful messages from my Lord.

This is one of those simply presented books which takes you easily into the deep things of God. Missionary, pastor, theology professor, and author, James Adams does not present some new and fancy thought. Just browse through the bibliography at the end of War Psalms and you will realize that the ideas Adams presents have been part of Christian thought from earliest church history.

The study starts with a look at the puzzles these particular Psalms present, searches for where they come from and who actually is praying them, sees our Lord as the instigator, looks at how they are quoted plentifully in the New Testament, and considers how we can use, pray, and preach these Psalms. Each chapter ends with questions for group study or individual thought. Several appendices add more information: our duty towards our enemies, sermon summaries, index to the Imprecatory Psalms, and New Testament references. Adams states about the Imprecatory Psalms, "All the enemies of the Lord need to hear these prayers of Christ proclaimed today. They are not the prayers of a careless and compassionless tyrant, but the effectual prayers of the Lamb of God who bore the curse of God for the sins of all who bow their knee to Him" (p. 34).

I invite you to a blessing. Open your Bible to the Psalms and read them cooperatively with James Adams' War Psalms of The Prince of Peace. - Donna Eggett, Christian Book
Indispensible for Preaching the Lord's Prayer  Nov 1, 2001
James Adams has done a great service to the body of Christ. This is an excellent discussion of the theology of the imprecatory psalms with much practical help and exhortation. This book will open your eyes to not only the psalms but much of the New Testament and the Lord's prayer in particular. It's only real down side is that there is not author or Scripture index for the book itself. ...
Liturgy for the Conscience Impaired  Jul 22, 2000
Our modern liturgies are weak and insipid because we neglect the Scriptures in general and the Psalms in particular. We especially neglect the "nasty psalms" that are so "mean" like Psalm 2, Psalm 58, Psalm 59, and Psalm 137.

Yet these are the very Psalms persecuted Christians and first the Jews of course have prayed for centuries.

Why pray them? Because, Jesus said "Ask,Seek,Knock". God hears them and avenges His people.

In our conscienceless society we don't believe that because "nobody" is sinful or needs punishment...unless it's a bible believing Christian of course.

If you believe in prayer, get the book and pray these psalms. They're the perfect liturgy for our freewheeling society.
