An insightful journey through the Pslams Mar 8, 2000
Ronald B. Allen's guide to worship in the Psalms: "And I Will Praise Him" silently asks the implied question "And will you?" This text is a technical and personal experience in the study and practice of Worship in the Psalms. Certainly the Psalms represent too large a subject to tackle in a brief work, and yet the reader finishes the book with a sense of "being there" in the Psalms. "And I Will Praise Him" is a great aid for those who are on a quest to gain greater understanding and benefit from this daunting and often perplexing book of poetic praise. A mountaineer needs the proper gear in his pack before he climbs a mountain, and so also anyone seeking greater spiritual heights through the Psalms must first load their pack with the equipment necessary for a successful journey. By way of introduction Ronald B. Allen begins with not only a definition of what a Psalm is, but goes further to explain "how a Psalm is". Here we gain the understanding of a genre of Psalms including Psalms of praise and Psalms of lament. Following, the text includes a detailed, but manageable explanation of the poetic devices of the Psalms, because "We must learn to read poetry well if we are going to read the Bible well. " Our next piece of equipment is a proper understanding of the ancient Hebrew's practice of praise; vocal, public and loud! Allen thoroughly establishes that the Psalmists intend praise to be congregational and vocal "to share with those who will understand best our excited boastings in the wonder of knowing the living God. " The reader is also equipped with a telescopic sight so that the praise of God might be seen "on target" as the Psalmists saw it. Finally Allen takes into account the origin of the mountain of the Psalms so that in understanding its creation we can appreciate the beauty, depth and might of the praise written by God and man. "And I Will Praise Him" fills the pack with the equipment needed for the journey into the Psalms. Praise is an Imperative! This is the one singular point that is established throughout this book as the basic understanding of the Psalms. Ronald B. Allen's book seeks to place praise in the context of life, or is that "place life in the context of praise"? This is the thesis of this book; that we should, no... we must, praise Him throughout all our days no matter what our circumstances may be. "Praise is a matter of Life and Breath. "
