The Lord Reigns: A Theological Handbook to the Psalms

Front Cover
Westminster John Knox Press, Jan 1, 1994 - Religion - 159 pages

James Mays convincingly argues that the declaration "The Lord reigns" is not only a statement of faith but a statement of a particular worldview: that is, there is a God, and all of reality can be understood only in terms of God and God's sovereignty. By addressing the importance of the language associated with the reign of God as expressed in the Psalms, The Lord Reigns offers a way to better understand the relationship between God and creation.
