This is my first book review for 2018!  This book is by David Kitz whose blog is titled “I love the Psalms” and I really appreciated this book from him!

David Kitz. Psalms Alive!  Winnipeg, Canada: Forever Books, September 1st 2009.  242 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

I have to admit that I’m not a spiritual devotional book kind of guy; among the hundred plus books I read last year only a small fraction of them have been devotional books.  However David Kitz’s devotional work on the Psalms was spiritually refreshing.  I enjoyed reading it and found the book spiritually edifying.

Dale Ralph Davis. The Way of the Righteous in the Muck of Life: Psalms 1–12.  Ross-Shire, UK: Christian Focus Publications, July 20th 2010. 144 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

This is a devotional Bible commentary on Psalm 1 through Psalm 12 written by Dale Ralph Davis, a Pastor and Professor of the Old Testament with Reformed Theological Seminary at Jackson, Mississippi.  I have previously enjoyed Davis’ commentary on the book of Judges and also his book titled The Word Became Fresh which the subtitle explained as “How to Preach from Old Testament Narrative Texts.”  Both works were phenomenal and I think one can say that Davis’ commentaries on Old Testament historical narratives are phenomenal and is one that an expositor of the Bible must have if he is going to teach on Old Testament narratives.  So when I saw that Davis’ had written a devotional commentary on the beginning of the Psalms I had to purchase it though it took me a few years before I finally read it and finished it.

This book is on the topic of a Christ and the Psalms by an Old Testament professor at Reformed Theological Seminary.  The author Richard Belcher takes a Christocentric approach towards the Psalms.  If you are interested in the Psalms, Messianic prophecies, hermeneutics and preaching Christ this book might be for you even if you don’t necessarily agree with everything the author has to say.
