From the Back Cover
The Book of Psalms has been the people of God's richest resource for expressing worship and developing the spiritual life. It is also one of the more complex and challenging sections of the Bible to expound responsibly and meaningfully. Pastors, teachers, and all serious students of the Bible will find this commentary invaluable for developing their understanding of the Psalms and for improving their ability to expound it with precision and depth.
Allen P. Ross, Ph D, University of Cambridge, is professor of divinity at Beeson Divinity School. He is the author of Creation and Blessing: A Guide to the Study and Exposition of Genesis and Holiness to the LORD: A Guide to the Exposition of the Book of Leviticus.
"Ross has given us the rich reflections of decades of research and teaching. But make no mistake. This is no sterile tome; it is a thorough, erudite exposition grounded in a deep faith for which students of the Psalms will be grateful for years to come."
M. Daniel Carroll R., Distinguished Professor of Old Testament, Denver Seminary
"Every generation or so a benchmark publication emerges that eclipses all works of the genre that have preceded it and sets the standard for all subsequent attempts. Ross has accomplished this in his massive three volume commentary on Psalms."
Eugene Merrill, Distinguished Professor of Old Testament, Dallas Theological Seminary
"Professor Ross's extensive and superb introduction alone is worth the purchase of the commentary."
C. Hassell Bullock, Franklin S. Dyrness Professor of Biblical Studies Emeritus, Wheaton College
"An invaluable tool for all those who seek to understand and expound the Book of Psalms. …[Ross] guides the expositor through each step of observation, analysis, interpretation, and application, which if followed are sure to enrich preaching and teaching of the Psalms."
John N. Oswalt, Visiting Distinguished Professor of Old Testament, Asbury Theological Seminary
"This commentary, which is the culmination of his years of research and reflection on the Psalter, exhibits the exegetical skill and theological insight that readers have come to expect from this outstanding scholar…It is the finest commentary on the Psalms available today."
Robert B. Chisholm, Jr., Chair and Professor of Old Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary
