Item description for Psalms Volume 1 EBC (Everyman's Bible Commentary) (v. 1) by Robert Alden...
Overview Designed for laypeople, these commentaries deal seriously with the biblical text without being overly technical. Introductory information, doctrinal themes, problem passages, and practical applications are examined.
Publishers Description Combining in a most helpful presentation both scholarly exegesis and practical application, this commentary discusses the meaning of the first fifty psalms. The Psalms served as the hymnbook of ancient Israel and expressed their deepest emotion and reverence toward God, so they are particularly well suited for devotional study. Dr. Alden says, "Here, more than any other place in the Bible, the heartthrob of the saint is heard. Here are the most exalted expressions of God's greatness; here are the most bitter groans of the sinful and the sick. Here is something for everyone in every mood." Each psalm is examined and discussed individually in sequence. The meaning of each psalm is carefully explained and an outline provided. An introductory section deals with the psalter as a whole and the questions of date and authorship. With all the helpful features utilized in the other "Everyman's Bible Commentaries" this is an ideal book for personal or group study, whether in a classroom or at home.
