Non-Fiction Review: James Adams’ “War Psalms of the Prince of Peace: Lessons from the Imprecatory Psalms”

War Psalms of the Prince of Peace: Lessons from the Imprecatory Psalms

I read and re-read the “blurb” about this book several times before getting it. The description enticed me, made me curious, and also a little unsure of delving into such a weighty book.

Would I understand it? Would I be able to pass it on to others?

Yes, whole-heartedly, to both. 

I am so very glad I got to read “War Psalms.” The edition I read is the ‘expanded and revised’ 25th anniversary copy. Dr. Adams’s writing is engaging, accessible, and completely on point. The truths he illuminates were well supported, as he meticulously built each facet of his lessons. Studying the Psalms can always be a little tricky, but “War Psalms” does a great job of tying the book of Psalms to the rest of the Bible and allowing us to see new threads in the weave of the master Story throughout.

This book would be incredible to go through with a Bible study group. It is powerful, and would shake up any church group who chose to read it – a stirring call to action. I highly recommend!

I received a review copy of this work from the publisher through NetGalley

  1. God willing I will be delivering a short paper at this year’s International Calvin Research Congress at Westminster Theological Seminary – Philadelphia, on John Calvin’s treatment of the imprecatory character of Psalm 109. It takes place from 26 August until the 30th. All are invited. Kind regards JFK Mulder.
