Life is a journey over uneven terrain, through changing seasons. Whether we encounter highs or lows, the biblical Psalms stand ready to engage our emotions and clarify our thoughts.

Joy Comes in the Morning introduces us to the three major genres of the Psalms—praise, lament, thanksgiving—as keys to understanding the Psalms and using them in our lives and worship. Woven into the author’s discussion of three representative psalms is his own testimony of how, even through trying seasons of life, joy comes in the morning.


"For nearly thirty years, Mark Futato has studied, taught, and lived the Psalms. Now he distills his multifaceted knowledge in a wonderfully readable and profound guide to the form, the interpretation, and the full meaning of the main genres of the Psalms. This is a clear, deep, and personal introduction to the songbook of Israel."

—Dan Doriani

"With this book Mark Futato reaffirms his position as a sensitive and insightful interpreter of the Psalms. Mark shares not only his knowledge with us but also his heart and life story. I recommend this book to pastors and laypeople alike."
