Item Description...
Psalms by James L. Mays is part of the Interpretation series published by John Knox Press. This volume covers all of the psalms in 457 pages. Each psalm is given a discussion which does not exceed eight pages, and some are given one page at most. The format is terse, not notated, and is designed for teaching or preaching. The biblical text is the NRSV translation (not included), and the comments are by a person who has spent considerable time teaching the subject at the college/seminary level. The book is not written from an evangelical stand point, but is pointed toward helping the pastor/teacher reach his/her audience with the aspects of biblical usage of a given psalm.

Publishers Description

The Psalms have been at the center of Christian faith and piety for centuries. Now, one of the foremost interpreters of the Psalms explores how they can still claim that place today. In this commentary, James L. Mays sets forth what the Psalms say about God, creation, humanity, and the life of faith. Mays proceeds with an awareness that the Psalms were originally composed for worship, and so he provides an understanding of the psalms as praise and prayer.

Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching is a distinctive resource for those who interpret the Bible in the church. Planned and written specifically for teaching and preaching needs, this critically acclaimed biblical commentary is a major contribution to scholarship and ministry.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Psalms : Intrepretation  May 9, 2008
INTREPRETATION Volume on the Psalms is a very well researched and scholastic text. The book explains the nature, theology, and history of the Psalms with clarity. A highly recommended text.
Haiku Review--Psalms (Interpretation Series)  Dec 30, 2006
Emotions are high

in "ancient cult" liturgies

for "goldess peoples."
readable expository essay  Mar 18, 2006
One's view of the book is dependent upon what one is seeking. Yes, it is a "readable expository essay" as proclaimed by the back cover. The essay is not peopled with the sort of narrative insight and entertaining draw into the human condition that we have become accustomed to in entertaining recent commentaries. It is scholarly and useful.
