This module combines two historical commentaries on the Psalms:
- The Psalms as Christian Worship (2009) – The Psalms as Christian Worship: A Historical Commentary is a collaboration by two of the most revered evangelical scholars of the last 50 years.Bruce Waltke, who has been teaching and preaching the book of Psalms for over fifty years, skillfully establishes the meaning of the Hebrew text through the careful exegesis for which he is well known. James Houston traces the church’s historical interpretation and use of these psalms, highlighting their deep spiritual significance to Christians through the ages.Waltke and Houston focus their in-depth commentary on thirteen psalms that represent various genres and perspectives or hold special significance for Christian faith and the life of the church, including Psalm 1, Psalm 23, Psalm 51, and Psalm 139.While much modern scholarship has tended to “despiritualize” the Psalms, Waltke and Houston’s “sacred hermeneutic” listens closely to the two voices of the Holy Spirit – heard infallibly in Scripture and edifyingly in the church’s response. A masterly historical-devotional commentary, The Psalms as Christian Worship will deepen the church’s worship and enrich the faith and life of contemporary Christians.
- The Psalms as Christian Lament (2014) – The Psalms as Christian Lament, a companion volume to The Psalms as Christian Worship, uniquely blends verse-by-verse commentary with a history of Psalms interpretation in the church from the time of the apostles to the present. Bruce Waltke, James Houston, and Erika Moore examine ten lament psalms, including six of the seven traditional penitential psalms, covering Psalms 5, 6, 7, 32, 38, 39, 44, 102, 130, and 143. The authors — experts in the subject area — skillfully establish the meaning of the Hebrew text through careful exegesis and trace the church’s historical interpretation and use of these psalms, highlighting their deep spiritual significance to Christians through the ages.Though C. S. Lewis called the “imprecatory” psalms “contemptible,” Waltke, Houston, and Moore show that they too are profitable for sound doctrine and so for spiritual health, demonstrating that lament is an important aspect of the Christian life.
