About the Author-

Allen P. Ross is the author of several different books and is currently a professor of divinity at Beeson Divinity School.

My thoughts- I thought this book was wonderful.  It is a resource I plan on recommending to people I know who are in Bible study and are pastors or teachers.

As a homeschooling mom, I particularly enjoyed the chapters, “Interpreting Biblical Poetry” and “Literary and Functions in the Psalms.”  I know I am going to use these chapters to help teach my children about biblical poetry and poetry in general.

The layout of the exposition of each Psalm by Allen P. Ross was very well thought out.  It certainly showed all the time and effort he put into developing his expositions.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants or needs to have in-depth knowledge of Psalms.
