In this 144 page paperback, Dale Ralph Davis walks the reader through the first twelve Psalms. He approaches the Psalms along the lines of Gordon Wenham in his book "The Psalter Reclaimed" (see my review of that fine work). Davis follows more of a canonical-redemptive flight pattern in interpreting the Psalms. Each Psalm is where it is for a reason, and that helps to unpack the meaning of the passage. But beyond that technicality, this is a delightful morsel to feed on, especially for weary, worn, watery-eyed souls that feel that their faith is becoming rice-paper thin."

"The Way of the Righteous in the Muck of Life" is truly what they title says. On the one hand, there are loads of reasons for God's covenant-love recipients to take heart. The God whom we love, not only loved us first, but continues to keep our plight in mind, guiding, sustaining, helping; "There is a sense in which Yahweh saves you again and again in your troubles and dangers. Some of you can point to having been 'saved' in that sense even this last week. We shouldn't forget this sense of 'salvation.' Maybe some of us are in arrears in the gratitude department as we haven't been remembering this" (48).

On the other hand, Davis doesn't hold back any punches when it comes to applying the good news of these Psalms. He draws believers into the punchy counsels of the Psalms, for example when writing about Psalm 5, "There is a difference between prayer and drivel. I do not want to advocate eloquence in prayer, but I want to reject thoughtlessness in prayer" (63). Similarly, he rubs the noses of the wicked in the gracious grit of the psalter.

So refreshing to find a readable commentary which hits many of the high points, instructs the reader, but doesn't exhaust you in the second paragraph!

Great truths available for everyone!

We completed this study in Sunday school. It was very inspiring, enlightening and thought provoking. We do have great teachers who made the book bring the Word of God to life in using this inspiring book. It is also a good study to do individually.

Dale Ralph Davis has given us yet another wonderful expository commentary, this time on the first twelve psalms. This short book gives a pithy analysis of each psalm interspersed with wonderful illustrations (often drawn from American history) and searching application. Davis has been an Old Testament professor and so his interpretations are carefully nuanced. He has also been a pastor and so his books are informed by careful observation of human nature. But above all he is a believer whose exposition of Scripture always leads to the Lord Jesus Christ and his grace, which alone can save us and lead us in the paths of godly living. My one gripe with this book is that it only covers twelve of the psalms. When are we going to be blessed with books on the remaining 138?
