Book Review: The Message of the Psalter: An Eschatological Programme in the Book of Psalms

The Message of the Psalter: An Eschatological Programme in the Book of Psalm (Journal for the Study of the Old Testament Supplement Series 252)The Message of the Psalter: An Eschatological Programme in the Book of Psalm by David C. Mitchell
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is an interesting study. Mitchell endeavors to trace an eschatological program through the canonical psalms. He considers historical scholarship and more modern scholarship on the predictive nature of the Psalms. I would quibble with some things here and there and felt like at times he was stretching to prove his thesis. Overall, it is a helpful study.

Book Review: The Homiletical Plot: The Sermon as Narrative Art Form

The Homiletical Plot, Expanded Edition: The Sermon as Narrative Art FormThe Homiletical Plot, Expanded Edition: The Sermon as Narrative Art Form by Eugene L. Lowry
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Overall a pretty good book. The concept of narrative sermon has to do with final form for delivery. So, the parts of the book dealing with how to get a sermon idea were the weakest. He doesn’t underplay exposition or theology, but I think the readers might not take them seriously enough. I understand how speaking of the plot of the sermon could be confusing to some, but it needs to be worked through. You going to have to overlook somethings and other things you will need to discern principles and make your own applications. It is a good and helpful read.
