Customer Reviews for Thomas Nelson The Book of Psalms: The Smart Guide to the Bible Series

Thomas Nelson The Book of Psalms: The Smart Guide to the Bible Series

Like timeless hymns, the psalms (or "songs") are prayer-filled poems that express praise, worship, and confession to God. Hear your heart sing as you embrace hope and healing; discover God's purpose and direction; and sense his loving and steadfast presence. You'll also gain insight into the historical context and contemporary significance of all 150 psalms. 320 pages, softcover from Nelson.

This book was purchased for Sunday School/Bible Study. It is a wonderful book because it really helps you to understand the Psalms. It is well written and a companion to the Word of God, so that your knowledge is clear. My church first used the Smart Guide: The Bible and we as a body of believers learned a lot that we did not know before. I suggest purchasing this book for your own personal growth in the LORD and for Bible Study.

I'm slowly working my way through this Smart Guide to the Psalms, for I always wondered why each particular Psalm was written and how I can apply it to my life today. It's really an eye opener. I'm enjoying it.

I'm planning on leading our bible study group through a study of the Psalms. I've read through the first six chapters of Psalms with this book and really like the insights this book provides and the historical information it provides. All the other studies I looked at would cover only some chapters; this covers them all.
Because it's a soft back I rated the quality as average; but because it's a soft back, I probably won't be so hesitant to write all over it.

This book has surpassed all my expectations. It is readable and explains events, people and situations at a level anyone can understand. It is helpful for studying or teaching from the Bible. Would highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking at investing or just in need of one book for Bible study or teaching.

We have been using the Smart Guide to the Bible series for several years in our adult Sunday School class. They are all exceptional aids. PSALMS is excellent in providing background and insight.
