Wednesday Giveaway – The Essential Bible Companion to the Psalms
9 You rule over the surging sea;
when its waves mount up, you still them.
10 You crushed Rahab like one of the slain;
with your strong arm you scattered your enemies.
11 The heavens are yours, and yours also the earth;
you founded the world and all that is in it. – Psalm 89
Beautiful and evocative, these are the words that come to mind as I read this Psalm. Other Psalms though are joyous, or pained, or even angry. Singing of the Creator and his creation might resonate with us, but what do we do when the Psalmist is crying out for God's wrath on his enemies? How should we read, and apply, the Psalter?
These are questions that Brian Webster and David Beach wrestle with in today’s featured giveaway, The Essential Bible Companion to the Psalms.
The video below gives an excellent overview of this book, and is very much worth watching. There will be two copies given out, and the giveaway will run through Thursday afternoon. To enter post below with the reference to your favorite Psalm, and (if you want) tell us why!
