P & R Publishing War Psalms of the Prince of Peace

Have you ever been puzzled by the Psalms? Many of the Psalms are beautiful poetic prayers, but some Psalms seem utterly shocking, so diametrically opposed,to all we've been taught about Christian love. In this approaching book, Jay E. Adams explains the purpose of the imprecatory war Psalms and teaches how to proclaim God's truth from them. In these psalms, it is God who is at war with his enemies.

James E. Adams is a pastor and the author of Decisional Regeneration and Libericion El Evangelio de Dios.< /i>Heearneda D.Min. degree from Westminster Theological Seminary, California. He served as a missionary in Latin America and has taught courses in theology both there and in the United States.

Great read and resource book on prayerfor intercessors. Good lessons on the difference between prayer regarding God's enemies and our personal enemies.

Thank you, James E. Adams, even though I had never heard of you before. I found your book by chance. By chance? No way! The Lord slipped War Psalms of the Prince of Peace into my hand, and then into my heart. Yes, of course I agree with Paul that all of Scripture is God-breathed and useful, but up until I read War Psalms I steered clear of those difficult Imprecatory Psalms. You know the kind: the ones that tend to say things like, Let his days be few; and let another take his office. Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow (Ps. 109:8-9). Or, Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones (Ps. 137:9). And then along comes War Psalms and, bingo-why-hadnt-I-thought-of it before, those Psalms became wonderful messages from my Lord. This is one of those simply presented books which takes you easily into the deep things of God. Missionary, pastor, theology professor, and author, James Adams does not present some new and fancy thought. Just browse through the bibliography at the end of War Psalms and you will realize that the ideas Adams presents have been part of Christian thought from earliest church history. The study starts with a look at the puzzles these particular Psalms present, searches for where they come from and who actually is praying them, sees our Lord as the instigator, looks at how they are quoted plentifully in the New Testament, and considers how we can use, pray, and preach these Psalms. Each chapter ends with questions for group study or individual thought. Several appendices add more information: our duty towards our enemies, sermon summaries, index to the Imprecatory Psalms, and New Testament references. I invite you to a blessing. Open your Bible to the Psalms and read them cooperatively with James Adams War Psalms of The Prince of Peace. Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com
