For the month of July, I am taking a short break in my series on the Sermon on the Mount and spending a few weeks in the book of Psalms. I love the Psalms. I love the heart attitude of David and the other authors. There is something about them that inspires me and motivates me to love the Lord. One thing I really appreciate about the Psalms is the real and often raw emotions. We see when the Psalmist struggles and when they are joyful. There are no masks worn in this book.
I have called my series Summer in the Psalms and hope to do this every July while in ministry. I do this because I can continue in a series, but each one can be independent of the other week. And since during the month of July, so many people are on vacation and gone, it works well. I thought I would share with you some of the commentaries I will be using in this series. This is not an exhaustive list of the ones I use, but some of my favorites. Who knows, maybe you will find time and money to purchase one of these.
There are several other commentaries I use, but these are probably my favorite four that I have learned from in the past. I would appreciate your suggestions as I might be in the market for a new commentary or two on the book of Psalms. What commentaries do you recommend on the book of Psalms?
