Item Description...
Scholarly and lucid, this important study of the Psalms focuses particular "postcritical" attention on their pastoral use---their function as voices of faith within the believing community---and provides valuable insights into the Psalter's sociological background. Brueggemann further reveals the shape and dynamic of the Psalms according to the theological framework of the crucifixion and resurrection.

Publishers Description
Dr. Brueggemann describes the human cries of anguish and the exultations of praise expressed in the Psalms.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Language too schlorarly for the average person  Jun 20, 2006
Found the language of the book too scholarly. Example: "The verbal form expressing Yahweh's actions is characteristically participial; that is, this is not an intrusive eventfulness, but an assured ongoing process that Yahweh does regularly and everywhere." The entire book is written in this manner.

I'm sure the contents are probably excellent but I found this book too difficult to read for the average joe.
The Psalms in their Theological-Psychological Perspectives  Apr 28, 2006
Dr. Walter Brueggemann, Old Testament professor/mentor/friend, taught this material at Eden Theological Seminary in Webster Groves, Missouri and later as a continuing education workshop in Florida. This is, in my judgment, the best work done on the Psalms and I use it as the basic text in my course in Florida Christian University/Theological Seminary on "The Psalms and Counseling". Not only does Brueggeman categorize the Psalms into "Orientation", "Disorientation", and "New Orientation" (an improvement on "Reinorientation" as a type), but he also helps us have a psychological perspective on these psalms and their uses within the church and our personal appropriation/and belief systems. This helps us find our route through disorientation and depression on into new orientation and joyful health.
I was loaned this book at a very difficult time in my life. I could no longer trust a God who had allowed my son to die. But by no longer conversing with God, I also lost my source of sustenance and renewal.

This book describes how the Psalms document the changes/seasons of a believing community's life of faith: a movement of faith from orientation to disorientation to a new orientation.

It helped me to understand that my relationship with God changes with my experiences of life. And that although I may be experiencing a period of disorientation in respect to God, eventually I will arrive at a new orientation, as did the people of Israel.
