An excellent short work on doctrine of the Church. If the two volumes of Bannerman are too long for you, this is the next best thing.
You will love the psalms more than ever after reading this book! Here is an easy to read fresh view into the background, history, development and teachings of the Psalms, from the best, uncompromisingly conservative scholarship. Includes chapters on the Messiah in the Psalms, Personal Religion, and the Imprecatory Psalms (the best on the subject). It also includes appendices on the development of psalm singing in the OT, its practice in the NT, and also throughout church history.
Chapter from a Book
This is hands-down, the best short treatment of the Imprecatory Psalms (psalms that call God’s curses down upon His enemies). Pure gold.
