This book might be a good addition to your library for quick thoughts on the Psalms, but the text is way too abridged for it to be immensely useful in sermon preparation. If you are looking for a quick devotional commentary on the Psalms this may be the right fit for you, if you are looking to preach out of the Psalms your money would be better spent elsewhere. Spurgeon's 3 Volume Treasury of David is probably the best bet for anyone considering preaching from the Psalms. Kudos to David Searle for trying to make Calvin's thoughts on the Psalms accessible to everyone, but I think it went to far for the preacher.

Beth from Banner of Truth also sent me John Calvin's Commentary On The Psalms abridged by David C. Searle for the purpose of review. I have wanted to do my own study of the Psalms for some time now. I was very excited to get the chance to review this commentary, especially this abridged version since the original Calvin commentary on the Psalms was five large volumes!
This commentary is 659 pages in length. Each Psalm is covered in 4 to 8 pages with the exception of Psalm 119. However, Psalm 119 is divided into sections allowing the reader to study one section at a time easily. Each verse of each Psalm is covered. Sometimes there may be 2 to 3 verses that are coupled together. Mr. Searle uses the ESV when providing the scripture feeling it was the most suitable when compared to Calvin's translation of the Hebrew text.
I plan to use Commentary On The Psalms this upcoming year as I read through the Psalms during my devotional times. Mr. Searle mentions in the introduction that Calvin was accustomed to calling the Psalms "an anatomy of all the parts of the soul" and asserted that his (Calvin) commentary "will train believers in earnest and genuine prayer, two requirements for which are a sense of our need and faith in the promises of God". What better way to begin the new year than with a sense of your need and faith in the promises of God?
