    1. In this 144 page paperback, Dale Ralph Davis walks the reader through the first twelve Psalms. He approaches the Psalms along the lines of Gordon Wenham in his book "The Psalter Reclaimed" (see my review of that fine work). Davis follows more of a canonical-redemptive flight pattern in interpreting the Psalms. Each Psalm is where it is for a reason, and that helps to unpack the meaning of the passage. But beyond that technicality, this is a delightful morsel to feed on, especially for weary, wor [...]

    2. This book is spiritually beneficial & profitable. I don't like devotional books but if they were less superficial and had more substance while still being brief then they would be of greater value to believers. Well, although this is by no means meant to be a devotional in the classic sense this is the kind of book that would qualify as a profitable devotional. The author covers one Psalm in each chapter, he does so with great clarity & is able to use the Hebrew language to open our unde [...]

    3. Warmly recommend. Delightfully and engagingly written and yet accurate and helpful - typical of Dale Ralph Davis commentaries (although even less "academic" than his works on Joshua - 2 Kings). I can't wait to dive into its sequel, Psalms 13-24.

    4. This is a devotional Bible commentary on Psalm 1 through Psalm 12 written by Dale Ralph Davis, a Pastor and Professor of the Old Testament with Reformed Theological Seminary at Jackson, Mississippi. I have previously enjoyed Davis’ commentary on the book of Judges and also his book titled The Word Became Fresh which the subtitle explained as “How to Preach from Old Testament Narrative Texts.” Both works were phenomenal and I think one can say that Davis’ commentaries on Old Testament his [...]

    5. Wonderful series of expositionsDavis has a great gift of being able to make God's word come alive to the reader. This series of expositions is vivid and enjoyable and will make for excellent devotional thoughts. I would have liked to see a more canonical/messianic approach to these Psalms but nevertheless, he always points the reader to Christ in some way.

    6. Davis has a wonderful way with words as well as a clear commitment to explaining the Bible text. This makes for both a pleasant and challenging read as he liberally sprinkles his message with interesting stories and powerful application of the psalm.

    7. I'm not sure how it's possible to be simultaneously scholarly, piercingly insightful and folksy, but Dale Ralph Davis achieves it. This is a book to be read and re-read.

    8. This was a really great study of Psalms 1-12. Dale Ralph Davis really knows what he's talking about and his insights into the Hebrew translation were really helpful. These Psalms can be a real comfort when going through troubles! I was a little disappointed because what I read lead me to believe there would be more of a focus on feelings of depression in this study but despite that it was still a very encouraging read.

    9. Dale Ralph Davis books seems to always get great reviews, especially his Focus on the Bible series but those aren't currently on Kindle so I thought I'd try this one. I wasn't particularly interested in Psalms, I was more interested in checking out the author. I enjoyed it, he took me step by step offering a practical explanation why the first few Psalms are organized the way they are. For me, the teaching was sound and offered interesting illustrations. I now wish his Focus on the Bible was on [...]

    10. American evangelist Dale Ralph Davis' book focusses on the first twelve Psalms, with essays on how he interprets all of them.I quite enjoyed this book, particularly as I had never considered exactly why the Psalms are ordered as they are, but here they are shown that they set out the things we need to remember first, such as why God is there for us and how He will save the righteous. I loved the way that Davis used examples from his own experience to illustrate his own points.I've been reading t [...]

    11. After reading his commentary on 1 Kings (which was a great read this past summer) I decided to spend some time reading this commentary. I enjoyed it, although it did take me awhile to read as there was a lot to chew on with each chapter commentating on each psalm. I did think that the author's translation of the psalms was an added plus with the beginning of each chapter having the psalm instead of reading alongside my own bible. I would like to read it again, and it will be useful when studying [...]

    12. I enjoy Dale Davis' writing and teaching. He is plain, clear, non-speculative, and humorous. This book on the first twelve Psalms is no different. You can read it with your devotions or use it to help with sermon prep. But either way you will be fed and come away full.

    13. I enjoy all of Dale Ralph Davis' commentaries on the Old Testament. Interesting illustrations, quality exegesis, and helpful application. In the introduction to the book, he asks, "Why Psalm 1-12?" Because there are 150 Psalms. Typical Davis. Get and read.

    15. Collections of sermons on the first 12 Psalms. Very helpful book that helps you see Gods faithfulness and plan for salvation. Lots of great analogies and explanations of scripture.

    16. Thanks Bob Dimmitt for recommending this book! Excellent devotional of the first 12 chapters of Psalms. I, as well, recommend "The Way Of The Righteous In The Muck Of Life."

    18. I like this author, but not his best work. Got a lot out of it, but the choice of illustrations was not as careful as in his commentaries.

    19. I can point to the times when many of the books of Scripture first transformed my life, but (to my dismay) never the Psalms. This book was just what I needed to open my soul to the psalms.
