Out of the depths of his own suffering and from his extensive study, Mark Futato has found in the Psalms a compelling portrait of Christ himself. The Psalms take us from lament to praise through a life-transforming encounter with their divine Author.
Futato finds in the major themes of the Psalms a portrait of Christ himself. The Psalms take us from lament to praise through a life-transforming encounter with the God of the Psalms. Fittingly, this insightful look into the Bible's book of praise is itself a praise-inspiring experience.

A simple, but remarkably powerful and spiritually uplifting explanation of the Psalms, touching your heart as well as stimulating your mind.
I have a lot of books on the Psalms. This one is different. With great insight, and drawing on his own experience, Dr. Mark Futato will lead you to the throne of God in a way that will renew your relationship with Christ and lift your eyes from pain to praise.
Futato knows his subject extremely well. The Psalms have been a passion of his for years, and it shows. He does an excellent job of communicating in an accessible way the results of his scholarship.
An encouraging look into the book of Psalms as a guide not only for our theology but for our practical Christian lives as well. I commend this book to all who yearn for a closer walk with God.
