Item Description...
Overview
McCann's A Theological Introduction to the Psalms represents a fresh approach to the book of Psalms. Taking his point of departure from the newest frontier of research, McCann reads the Psalms in the context of their final shape and canonical form. He interprets the psalms in their identity as scripture as well as in their character as songs, prayers, and poetry from Israel's history. McCann's intent is to contribute to the church's recovery of the Psalms as Torah-Instruction (not as law), as a guide to prayer, praise of God, and pious living. The explicit connections which McCann draws from the psalms to the New Testament, and to Christian faith and life, are extensive, making his work suitable for serious study of the psalms both in academic and church settings. An appendix examines the tradition of singing the psalms and offers suggestions and resources for the use of the psalms in worship.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
selectic New Testament usage of psalms  Dec 1, 2005
The items covered by the book are covered well. However, the deep questions a non-selective reader of the pslams will uncover curious and difficult theological issues beyond this book. For example, what of the psalms which speak of our Lord as mighty among the gods? How do we deal with psalms that cry out for bashing children's heads against rocks. What about the abundance of curses? A truly theological introduction to the book of Psalms would address the issues the psalms present.
 
The psalms from Old Testament to New Testament  Dec 24, 1998
McCann provides an interesting treatment of the Psalms by discussing categories (prayer, praise) through the development of selected psalms. McCann provides background data and occasional linguistic (Hebrew words) comments when examining a psalm but the emphasis is on the message of the psalm and its setting in Israel and the Psalter. The author views the Psalms from a Christian perspective but, since he is from the liberal tradition, (his note) the New Testament authors (including Jesus) only refer to or develop the psalms; since there is no prophecy and fulfillment in the Psalter. McCann integrates other literature into his discussion as examples and is quite conversant with recent developments among scholars in Psalms studies. The book does not develop theological matters as much as one might like; especially considering the title, but it is quite thorough and informative. McCann's last chapter, "The Psalms and Jesus Christ," should be read both at the beginning and the end of the book to give the reader his full perspective.
