"Michael Travers has planted a refreshingly God-centered and application -oriented book in the landscape of Psalms studies. His purpose in writing is devotional -- to challenge the reader to know and love God more and to apply the Psalms in daily life. Although the work is devotional in nature, Travers has not omitted scholarship. He examines the major features of the study of Hebrew poetry: communicated experience, terseness/intensity, parallelisms, macro/micro structures, and figures of speech (simile, metaphor, image, symbol, personification, metonymy, and synecdoche). These features are critical for understanding the message of the Psalms. As an English professor, Travers has sophisticatedly supplemented the work with poems from non-canonical authors (e.g. Milton, Tennyson) when appropriate. The title of the book is true to its substance."
