The Psalms: Jesus’ Prayer Book

revised November 11, 2019

Bruce Waltke writes, “Doug Webster, professor of Pastoral Theology and Christian Preaching at Beeson Divinity School, in his splendid work, The Psalms: Jesus’ Prayer Book aims “to sync life with the Psalms.” He successfully achieves this aim by his judicious use of scholarship with his own insights into the wisdom of the psalms and into the human condition. But he does more. By combining his spiritual words with the Spirit-inspired psalms he transforms the believer’s life into the image of the Lord Jesus Christ of whom the psalms speak. Here is a book that readily provides rich spiritual material for personal and pastoral application.”
