Perhaps more clearly than any other part of the biblical canon, the book of Psalms includes human words directed to God. Yet, through the Holy Spirit, these honest, sometimes brutal words return to us as the Word of God. Their agonies and exaltations reflect more than the human condition in which they were created. Within the context of the canonical Psalter, they become the source of divine guidance, challenge, confrontation, and comfort. It is possible, however, to misapply them. How can we use the book of Psalms in a way that faithfully connects God’s meaning in them and his intentions for them with our circumstances today?
In continuity with Gerald Wilson’s work in Psalms, Volume 1, Dennis Tucker and Jamie Grant reveal the links between the Bible and our present times. While they consider each psalm independently, they go much further, examining whole groups of psalms and, ultimately, the entire Psalter, seeking its purpose and use for the days of Hebrew temple worship through church history. In so doing, the authors open our eyes to ageless truths for our twenty-first-century lives.

The NIV Application Commentary helps you communicate and apply biblical text effectively in today's context.
To bring the ancient messages of the Bible into today's world, each passage is treated in three sections:
- Original Meaning. Concise exegesis to help readers understand the original meaning of the biblical text in its historical, literary, and cultural context.
- Bridging Contexts. A bridge between the world of the Bible and the world of today, built by discerning what is timeless in the timely pages of the Bible.
- Contemporary Significance. This section identifies comparable situations to those faced in the Bible and explores relevant application of the biblical messages. The author alerts the readers of problems they may encounter when seeking to apply the passage and helps them think through the issues involved.
This unique, award-winning commentary is the ideal resource for today's preachers, teachers, and serious students of the Bible, giving them the tools, ideas, and insights they need to communicate God's Word with the same powerful impact it had when it was first written.
