Product Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

Dr. James Adams’ War Psalms of the Prince of Peace must rank among the finest studies on the imprecatory Psalms ever. For that reason alone it is a classic. I routinely advise others to read this book when any question about those Psalms arises. In our current time, the book is important not only to bring understanding to those Psalms, but also for applying them in the spiritual warfare in which we now find ourselves. We would all do well to spend time in this book, with these Psalms, and in prayer for God to triumph over the forces of evil we face today.
“James Adams’s book on the rather startling, imprecatory psalms is the best of its kind, and richly deserves reprinting. Christ-centered throughout, it is enlightening, succinct, warm, practical, and helpful for everyone grappling with the strong language of these psalms—including pastors! Once you’ve read this book, you will no longer feel confused or embarrassed by these psalms, nor will you want to avoid them. Rather, you will view them as focused on God’s superlative glory and as a zealous tribute to the Prince of Peace. Let Dr. Adams’s book assist you to preach, teach, and pray the ‘war psalms’ as never before!”

    If 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.

    This excellent book opened my eyes to a very neglected large part of the scriptures. 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.
