The Tyndale Old Testament commentaries are some of the greatest introductory commentaries on the Old Testament, first began in the 1960’s, there have been several revisions and replacements for older volumes in the series, many of these replacements have been commentaries from the late noted scholar Derek Kidner, who wrote a plethora of commentaries for this phenomenal series. Yet despite constant replacements being added the current publisher of this series, IVP, has decided to take all of Kidner’s commentaries which have been replaced and revived them in a new series called Kidner Classic Commentaries. Each of these works is the commentary formerly found in the Tyndale Old Testament series but revived so that they might not go out of print, which would be a shame for each and every one of his commentaries are worth owning.
In Kidner’s second volume of his commentary on the book of Psalms, 73-150, begins with a short introductory section, which while short is extremely helpful, with Kidners typical insightfulness. In reference to the commentary on the text of this book of wisdom, Kidner takes great care in carefully exegeting the passage while giving great practical application to the reader throughout the textual commentary. A pastor will find Kidner’s practical insights extremely helpful in giving application from the text to his congregants, while the laymen will find this commentaries easy to use formant and the non-technical format an easy read.
With regard of recommending, Psalms 73-150 , to others I would whole heartily recommend this commentary to students of scripture, Pastors, Bible Teachers, Sunday school teachers, with is enough depth to this text to understand a particularly issue in the text while giving aid to pastors in preaching the text.
This book was provided to me free of charge from IVP Publishing in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.
