A part of the Truth Commentary series, The Book of Psalms (Volume 1), by Evan and Marie Blackmore, examines Psalms 1-72. The book of Psalms is like no other Bible book. It is not only for reading, but for singing (Col. 3:16). It is also the largest collection of God-given prayer material. This commentary, designed for practical use, gives special attention to psalm singing and the use of psalm material in prayer. Each psalm is introduced by a simple summary. Detailed questions of interest to readers or singers are then considered, as well as issues particularly relevant for song leaders and songbook compilers.
