Psalms: Their History, Teachings, and Use

William Binnie [1823-1886], The Psalms: Their History, Teachings and Use, new edn

Today’s free book is William Binnie study of the Psalms. I thought that this book was particularly helpful, not just for its analysis of the theology of the Psalter, but for its description of the use of the Psalms both in the Old Testament and through the history of the Church.

This public domain title was digitised from the copy held in Spurgeon’s College Library.
