RCS OT 07: Psalms 1 - 72

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in " the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the
law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. (Psalm 1:1-2, ESV)"
The book of Psalms has been the subject of daily and nightly meditation
throughout the history of the church, and has been a significant resource for
Christian belief and practice, often serving as the church's prayer book and
hymnal. Like generations of Christians before them, the Protestant Reformers
turned often to the book of Psalms, but they did so during a time of
significant spiritual renewal, theological debate and ecclesiological reform.
In the Psalms the Reformers found comfort, guidance and wisdom from God that
applied to their context as much as it did to David's. As John Calvin
explained, the Psalms demonstrate every emotion that people have experienced:
The Holy Spirit has presented in a living image all the griefs, sorrows, " fears, doubts, hopes, cares, perplexities, in short, all the emotions with
which human minds are often disturbed. Moreover, as Martin Luther proclaimed, " the Reformers also heard in the Psalms a resounding affirmation of the good
news of Jesus Christ: The Psalter ought to be a precious and beloved book " because it promises Christ?s death and resurrection so clearly."
In this volume, Herman Selderhuis guides readers through the diversity of
Reformation commentary on the first half of the Psalter. Here are both familiar
voices and lesser-known figures from a variety of theological traditions,
including Lutherans, Reformed, Radicals, Anglicans and Roman Catholics, many of
whose comments appear here for the first time in English. By drawing on a
variety of resources - including commentaries, sermons, treatises and
confessions - this volume will enable scholars to better understand the depth
and breadth of Reformation commentary, provide resources for contemporary
preachers, and aid all those who seek to meditate upon God's Word day and night.
Series: Reformation Commentary on Scripture, Old Testament, volume 7.
