Editorial Reviews

For nearly thirty years, Mark Futato has studied, taught and lived the Psalms. Now he distills his multi-faceted knowledge in a wonderfully readable and profound guide to the form, the interpretation and the full meaning of the main genres of the Psalms. This is a clear, deep, and personal introduction to the song book of Israel.
With this book Mark Futato reaffirms his position as a sensitive and insightful interpreter of the Psalms. Mark not only shares his knowledge with us but also his heart and life story. I recommend this book to pastors and laypeople alike.
