Is the God of the Old Testament the same God of the New Testament? The Psalms from a Christian Perspective scrutinizes each of the 150 psalms in terms of setting and what the writer is trying to say, underscoring that the writers-nearly half of the psalms are attributed to King David-struggled with the same human condition we suffer with today. This commentary on the book of Psalms also points out how each of the 150 psalms reflects or does not reflect the Christian faith. The book of Psalms is a mirror of self and a window into God. It also explains why we need a redemptive divine savior and predicts the suffering to be endured by our savior.
