The Teach the Text Commentary Series gives pastors the best of biblical scholarship and presents the information needed to move seamlessly from the meaning of the text to its effective communication. By providing focused commentary on each psalm, this volume allows pastors to quickly grasp the most important information. Each unit of the commentary includes the big idea and key themes of the passage; sections dedicated to understanding, teaching, and illustrating the text; and full-color illustrations, maps, and photos.
Throughout the centuries, the Psalms have held a beloved place in Judaism and Christianity, and in the lives of individual believers. They express in profound ways the thoughts and emotions of the soul, from the highest experiences of joy and praise to the lowest valleys of lament. C. Hassell Bullock has been deeply shaped by the Psalms, and this commentary is born out of a lifetime of loving study–as a Christian, a professor, and a pastor. He brings all three perspectives to bear, skillfully leading the reader through each psalm, with attention paid to genre, structure, theology, and practical application. Here is wise guidance for preachers and teachers who wish to bring the timeless messages of the Psalms to today’s believers.
C. Hassell Bullock (PhD, Hebrew Union College) is professor of Hebrew Bible emeritus at Wheaton College. He is the author of the first volume on Psalms in the Teach the Text Commentary Series, as well as An Introduction to the Old Testament Poetic Books..
