This eight-session study of the Book of Psalms (DVD/digital video downloads sold separately) masterfully mixes scholarly and practical teaching through the most-known wisdom Book of the Bible. The key messages of this study include: what the Book of Psalms is (the hymnbook of ancient Israel), how it was utilized in Israelite worship (the various "forms" of the Psalms), and why the Book of Psalms remains critical to our devotional lives today.
