Jewish scholars long ago realised that Psalms 113-118 form a significant grouping within the Psalter. Read and ponder the implications of the Dying Lamb facing Calvary in the light of these songs that extol God's power to save.

Allan Harman, Research Professor of Old Testament, Presbyterian Theological College, Melbourne, Australia

Philip Ross combines literary skill, historical breadth, academic depth, and timely wit in encouraging the psalms for the church today. He gives due consideration to their original setting for the Old Testament church, to their meaning for Jesus in the Upper Room, and for the Christian church.

Terry L. Johnson, Senior Pastor, Independent Presbyterian Church, Savannah, Georgia

Whether Philip Ross is tackling the relation of the 'Egyptian Hallel' to early Jewish Passover liturgies or the task of exposition of the Psalms we meet with the same painstaking care, mastery of facts, and, above all, devout recognition of Holy Scripture as the Word of God.

Alec Motyer, (1924–2016) Well known Bible expositor and commentary writer

Don't rush through this book; it should be savored bit by bit. You can bask in its fresh insights, squirm under its searching exposure - and all the while Dr Ross keeps you firmly tethered to Jesus. Here is a mind-filling, soul-nourishing, Christ-focused feast!

Dale Ralph Davis, Respected Author and Old Testament Scholar

The passion of Christ, even the very words Christ prayed during his agony, are drawn from the psalms, specifically Psalms 113-118. With pastoral care and sobering conviction, Philip Ross reveals why these psalms became our Savior's dying anthem.
