Audible Editor Reviews

Dr. Bill Creasy shares this extremely important work at the heart of both Judaism and Christianity. Intended to be sung, these psalms offer praise and thanksgiving to God as well as laments and supplications. Dr. Creasy shows great passion for the psalms, not only for their beauty but also for the relationship their study builds with God. Dr. Creasy explains in detail this ancient prayer book's historical context, melodies, and symbolism. With a heartfelt tone and countless detailed explanations, Dr. Creasy makes learning about these poems fun and emotional.

Publisher's Summary

The Psalms have been the prayer book of Israel for the past 3,000 years and the prayer book of the church for the past 2,000 years. The Psalms explore every possible response we can have to God, from the highest awe to the deepest love, from the darkest despair to icy anger. In the Psalms, we join David as we plumb the very depths of our hearts in our relationship with God. Join Logos Bible Study as Dr. Bill Creasy explores the Psalms, a journey through the poetry of experience.

    "The stories behind the songs"

    As familiar as so many of the Psalms are, this study enhanced both their beauty and meaning by telling the backstories of who wrote each, and in many cases (especially those by David) the historical context that inspired them. Dr. Creasy also broke down the poetic structure of some of the more elegantly written ones, revealing a new perspective what it took to create these spiritual works of art. Old favorites shine brighter, lesser knowns have been elevated. Great study.

    "Awesome lecture series!"

    This is another great lecture series from Dr. Bill Creasy. He is always incredibly insightful and engaging. He often supplements the material with personal stories which are relevant and interesting. He has taken several trips to Israel and the Middle East where he visits the locations depicted in the Bible and he shares those first hand accounts which enables him to take you back to that point in time that the scripture is talking about.

    "A very helpful and insightful guide through the psalms"

    It brings the psalms to life, like having an enthusiastic tour guide taking you through a museum you've walked though before and only seen a clutter of old stuff. Now you can see the beauty of the crafted objects, feel the emotions and stories behind them and want to keep revisiting to study every part.
