Tying Old and New Testament together in joyous proclamation of our Lord, Praying the Psalms of Jesus makes appealing, challenging food for Christian group and/or individual study. In the Gospels are examples of Jesus expressing His deep thoughts via the Psalms; and in the Psalms are pictures of Christ Jesus. As we work through the Psalms presented in this book we receive relaxation (into our Lord) and stimulation (moving towards our Lord). Nine different Psalms lead us to consider such subjects as: Jesus abandoned and exalted; the stone rejected by the builders; Jesus riding upon the storm; our Shepherd; and, His anger. Each Psalm is approached from several facets. These depend on the Psalm itself. For example, the chapter on Psalm 110 begins with a general discussion and then considers Jesus’ interpretation, David’s interpretation, the early church’s view, and our relation to it. This volume finishes with useful summary materials: epilogue, leaders’ aids, and index.

Praying the Psalms of Jesus directs the Christian mind and heart in several directions depending upon the particular needs of the reader - such as prayer, devotion, worship, spiritual growth, and increased Bible knowledge. While many of the ideas demand deep thought, the narrative is clear and uncomplicated, presented by an author who obviously has great affection for the Psalms. I found spiritual growth in the reading of this book; and, especially enjoyed following the directions in each chapter for using the Psalm for confession, praise, and worship. -- Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com

    This is a wonderful book. It connects Jesus to the Psalms. Our church is doing a Psalms Fest...selecting a Psalm that has a personal meaning to us then creating something artistic..such as a drawing, a painting, prose or music to express your feelings.
