In this commentary, Philip Eveson brings his skills as an Old Testament scholar, blended with a warm pastor’s heart to produce a work that will serve the student, the preacher/teacher and the devotional reader equally well.
‘As in his commentary on Genesis, Philip Eveson has done a superb work in his two-volume Commentary on the Psalms. He has provided a treasury of food for the soul as well as fodder for the preacher. Eveson indicates awareness of critical questions along the way regarding the Psalms, but never at the expense of rich insight arising from solid exegesis. He does his own work well, never simply re-hashing what others have already said. Among the many commentaries old and new available on the Psalms, Eveson’s work ranks right at the top. Highly recommended.’
