A review of Waltke (1)

November 9, 2008

A while ago I said that I would review Waltke’s take upon the Psalms and I thought it best that I should make a start! In his introduction to the Psalter he notes that “the Psalter advances significantly the Bible’s message that God’s kingdom is irrupting into the world for his glory and our good” (pp. 870) and goes on to note that “with the exception of Psalm 88, ‘the black sheep of the Psalter,’ every petition leads to praise” (pp. 871). With this I couldn’t agree more!

This links in well with my conversation with Bob MacDonald.
