Continuing the excellence we found in volume 1, this volume covers Psalms 42-89. Mr. Ross is a steady hand in the Psalms and provides a treasure trove for pastors and Bible students.
The format is ideal. First, you have the text with choice exegetical notes. Then you have a section entitled “Composition and Context.” This is especially helpful in the Psalms, and I notice Mr. Ross takes time to discuss the biblical background as well as how Christians used the Psalms in the past. He does a great job relating the New Testament as well.
He provides an exegetical analysis, which is really just a detailed outline, for those who think in terms of outlines. Finally, he gives a “Commentary In Expository Form” that is outstanding and contains copious footnotes. It is well done in a way that an expositor would have to love. He will bring out things you did not know.
This is a quality piece of work and we wish him well in delivering volume 3. I know I really want all the Psalms covered by this scholar who writes with a distinct warmth. This volume along with the few other released volumes bodes well for the Kregel Exegetical Commentary series as well.
I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
