Item Description...
Overview
According to Hassell Bullock, "No collection of poems has ever exercised as much influence on the Western world as the Book of Psalms." The attraction for Jews, Christians, and others is surely the personal element that pervades these poems, which describe the human situation in all its complexity. Though the Psalms are perhaps the most familiar portion of the Hebrew Bible, they are also among the most difficult to interpret. As a result, Bullock has created this guide to introduce students to the study and interpretation of the Psalms. This book begins by examining literary and hermeneutical dimensions. Bullock discusses the nature, structure, and authorship of the Psalter and provides readers with specific principles for interpretation. He goes on to examine the use of Psalms in worship from the ancient world to the twenty-first century. Bullock further explores how the psalmists used historical reflection to serve their theological purposes, and he concludes by investigating different types of psalms (e.g., praise, lament, and wisdom).

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent  Jun 10, 2008
When I first picked this book up, I was met with material far beyond my expectations. The book is one of the finest introductions to the book of Psalms available. I have used it as a textbook on the graduate level, and even doctoral students finde it helpful and meaningful. It is quite appropriate for the general Christian reader and for a college text. It is not a commentary, but a general introductin to the Psalms, covering all of the issues that oen needs to know in order to interpret and understand this profoundly important book of the Bible.
