br />Yet, for many centuries the Psalms would have been the most familiar part of scripture to people who had no access to books. They are not only an integral part of the shared experience of the church but they also communicate God's guidance to this world, unfurl his character and encourage his people.The range of subjects covered is staggering! They extol God' s greatness and invite repentance, express commitment to his covenants and adherence to his law - and look forward to the coming Messianic kingdom. The style is predominantly praise but includes prayers, complaints - and even curses! Many were composed as liturgy, to be sung by God's people together, others are private and personal yet have still found a place as shared worship in the church.All of which makes them fascinating! This volume covers the first 3 books of the psalms (Psalms 1 to 89).
Eric trained to be a minister in the Church of England where he remained for 7 years. He was then called to be the minister of an Independent Evangelical Church where he pastored for 30 further years. Now retired Eric's special interest is in the 'Wisdom' books of the Old Testament

Without a doubt this commentary will be of great practical help to all students of the psalms.
A commentator of yesteryear once said that he never wrote a commentary on a Bible book before he had read the book through at least fifty times. Eric Lane shows the same extensive direct contact with the text and this gives his work an attractive and stimulating freshness. His views on the chronological order of the psalms are somewhat controversial but will likewise stimulate the reader.
