War Psalms of the Prince of Peace: Lessons from the Imprecatory Psalms is written by James E. Adams and published by P and R Publishing. The Psalms is one of the most read parts of the Bible. While long in length the Psalms usually give a straightforward prayer/song about God, reminding us of who He is and what He has done. Yet while most of the Psalms are easy to understand and pray alongside with, the Imprecatory Psalms are some of the least understood yet most abused parts of the Old Testament. War Psalms of the Prince of Peace examines these Psalms demonstrating that the Imprecatory Psalms, while hostile in language are not vindictive rather they are Psalms which may be prayed with the merciful goal of conversion.
While relatively short in length , 176 pages, War Psalms of the Prince of Peace packs a hefty amount of Psalm expository into a person’s hands. This book also boasts a very insightful set of appendices which further explain and apply the correct understanding of the Imprecatory Psalms. In his the 25th edition the content has been further expanded and is updated for the ease of the reader.
If you are looking to dive into Psalms that you never understood, that you have shied away from , Psalms like Psalm 2, Psalm 58, Psalm 59, and Psalm 137, then this book is for you. Read this book while remembering that “all Scripture All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” (2 Tim. 3:16-17).
