Although the Psalms are much beloved by readers of the Bible, some hostile language in individual psalms may be disconcerting. Are these seemingly vindictive prayers acceptable in the mouths of Christians? How is a pastor supposed to preach these texts?
In War Psalms of the Prince of Peace, James Adams wants us to embrace God's Word in its entirety, and that means examining the parts that make us uncomfortable. In short, helpful chapters, Adams answers a number of questions: Are these psalms from God? Who is the speaker in the psalms? May we pray these psalms today? It turns out that the Prince of Peace has much to teach us about war, and even the imprecatory psalms may be prayed with the merciful goal of conversion.
This Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Edition is revised and expanded, including a new epilogue and an additional chapter.

Chris4 Stars Out Of 5A good introductionJanuary 16, 2017ChrisQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0If there is one area in the Bible where Christians seem to be clueless how to teach and apply today, it is the imprecatory psalms. In this short book, Adams provides us with a helpful orientation towards studying these controversial psalms. While certainly not an exhaustive resource, this introduction can be helpful for someone wanting a brief overview before starting more in-depth study. While not always a fan of some of his rhetoric and perhaps not in full agreement with some of his conclusions (such as Christ being the one praying the imprecatory psalms in the Psalter), it can provide opportunities to think critically through these texts and to consult his recommended reading list in the back of the book for further reading.

It feels like we have been going to war while leaving one of our weapons at home and we wonder why evil so often triumphs. Since we are to seek God's kingdom first, this book is highly recommended.
