The Messiah and the Psalms: Preaching Christ from All the Psalms
Richard P. Belcher Jr.
Helps pastors, seminary students, lay leaders, and Christians in personal study understand how the psalms relate to Christ so they will be better equipped to preach and teach. Some psalms have a direct relationship to Christ, but with other psalms the link is not always as evident. Belcher shows that all the psalms relate in some way to Christ's person or his work. The biblical basis for this view is laid out and then how it works with different types of psalms is examined. In addition to this Belcher then goes on to offer deeper exposition into those psalms that have a direct relationship to Christ.
