    Psalms, Volume 1: The Wisdom Psalms

    A Commentary for Biblical Preaching and Teaching

    Kerux Commentaries enable pastors and teachers to understand and effectively present the main message in a biblical text

    Each volume uniquely combines the insights of an experienced Bible exegete (trained in interpretation) and a homiletician (trained in preaching). These two authors work together to explain the essential message for the original listeners or readers, unpack its timeless truth, and then
    provide a contemporary restatement and communication insights for the key biblical concept.

    Psalms, Volume 1: The Wisdom Psalms includes psalms with themes perpetuated in Old Testament wisdom literature such as Job, Proverbs, and Ecclesiastes. These psalms extol God as the author of wisdom, contrasting the righteous, who acknowledge and follow God's ways, with the wicked, who rebel against him. Likewise, wisdom psalms praise God's special revelation of his laws and promises. The psalmists
    commend the virtue of pursuing God's truth and teaching. Marlowe and Savelle explore these psalms' original significance for their ancient audience and use this knowledge to reveal where and how God continues to speak through the wisdom psalms today. Readers will be empowered to teach and preach the Psalms with a renewed perspective.
