Item Description...
Overview
Analyzing the psalms that are frequently left out of the lectionary readings, Zenger argues that they are actually cries against violence and injustice, and shows how modern Christians can use them in worship and prayer.

Publishers Description

The aggressive tone of the psalms that deal with violence is often viewed as in direct opposition to Jesus' command to love one's neighbor. Erich Zenger, a preeminent international scholar, offers to Christians a new understanding of these powerful, albeit disquieting, psalms. To Zenger, these psalms are laments that cry out against violence and injustice in the world and have great relevance to people of faith today. Readers will appreciate Zenger's forthright discussion of how to use these psalms in modern prayer.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Psalms of Divine Wrath  Aug 2, 2001
Zenger approaches some of the most difficult psalms to understand: the psalms of vengeance. Like most Christans, and perhaps many Jews, I had mumbled over these psalms uncomfortably, and quickly forgot them. But this book helped me tremendously to appreciate and value these psalms, and some of them have become rather important to me. Zenger discusses the psalms as laments against violence and injustice, and he discusses how we can use these psalms in our own prayer.

A professor of Old Testament Theology at Princeton Theological Seminary wrote that this book was the "most extensive and best work that I know of on one of the most troubling dimensions of scripture... With both careful and rich exegesis of the psalms... Zenger recovers these as important liturgical and theological resources..."

If these Psalms, and the classic image of the wrathful Old Testament God, have disturbed you, and you want to integrate them productively into your spirituality, this is an excellent book for you.
