By Dr. Philip J. King
The Apostle Paul’s epitaph, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have kept the faith,” is an apt description of the life of a biblical scholar. Philip J. King, professor emeritus of biblical studies at Boston College, has spent his life standing at the intersection of two important disciplines—the Bible and archaeology. In Biblical Guideposts on the Road of Life, King turns his attention to the Psalms, the prayer book of the Bible, and the life lessons that can be gleaned from its pages.
