‘A rich volume, dropping fatness. Invaluable to the preacher. Having read and re-read it, we can speak of its holy savour and suggestiveness. We commend it with much fervour.’ — C. H. SPURGEON

Book Description

Of all the books of Scripture, the Book of Psalms has ever occupied a foremost position in the experience of believers. For three thousand years it has nurtured infants, guided pilgrims, fired Reformers, inspired preachers, solaced martyrs, and comforted the aged. In those eras when the power of godliness has been most evident, the Psalms have been central in the life of the Church.

The importance of the Psalms is reflected in the vast amount of literature devoted to them. From Athanasius in the fourth century to C. H. Spurgeon in the nineteenth, valuable commentaries on the Psalms have steadily multiplied. The particular value of this work by Dickson is that it is simply written and is a compact size. It is suggestive rather than exhaustive and designed not for the deliberation of scholars but for the meditation of saints. While Dickson aims primarily at giving an accurate exegesis his main emphasis is instructive and devotional.

  1. Adam Swift

    This book is worth every penny just for the abundance of application points Plumer provides at the end of each Psalm! For preachers, this is a must-have for expositing the Psalms. He pulls out application I would never have thought of from my own reading of the text.

  2. Martha Hauser

    Within the collection of Reformer commentaries, each being a treasure, Dickson’s Psalms is one that exemplifies what commentary is about. Morning portions of Scripture read daily and expounded with understanding and yet such love of the Lord, that they reach both heart and mind. Just as God restores the whole person, the commentary addresses this within the written text. You cannot walk away without being under the Scripture and have learned from it. It is not one you can read quickly and absorb that level of teaching, because meditation results naturally from the portions read and his commentary. It is in KJV, so the language is beautiful as well.
