Prayer, Praise and Prophecy: A Theology of the Psalms
“Geoffrey Grogan has given us a marvelous handbook to the Psalms. He does not tack on theological themes at the end but places them front and center, at the heart of the book, forcing us to face the God of the psalms. He has digested a mass of Psalms research and yet releases it in the most palatable and useful doses. I profited immensely from his treatment of the literary design of the Psalter; he helps us see in the Psalms a consciously coherent work (in five books) rather than random bits of poetry. If I were teaching a course on the Psalms, this would be my textbook.See All

In the Garden of Eden, God walked with Adam and Eve face to face—then the fall separated us. The Psalms are God's gift to us to help reestablish contact, understand his mind and how to connect with him.
This is not a commentary on the Psalms, instead, Geoffrey Grogan seeks to introduce us to some of the theological dimensions of this important and much love bible book such as:
- How have the Psalms been interpreted throughout History?
- Who wrote them and is there a Purpose in their structure?
- What were they used for and how should we use them today?
- What do they teach us about God?
