A thorough but approachable commentary on Psalms.

After introducing the Psalter, the authors provide the NRSV translation and comment on each Psalm. The commentary aspects provide a basic idea of what each individual psalm is about, some of its history or the history of interpretation, and similar matters. For most Psalms there are additional thoughts provided to explore more deeply or to consider applications: short discussions of theology, use in Christendom, connections with other Psalms, and many of the thoughts on the Psalms that one could expect to hear especially from Brueggemann.

A forthright commentary that primarily attempts to make the best sense of the Psalms as can be done in context with good theological considerations and applications. Highly recommended when studying Psalms. ( )

This text introduces the book of Psalms and provides an exposition of each psalm with attention to genre, liturgical connections, societal issues, and the psalm's place in the book of Psalms as a whole. The treatments of the psalms feature a close look at particular issues raised by the text and the encounters between the world of the psalm and the world of contemporary readers. The exposition of each psalm provides a reader's guide to the text in conversation with relevant theological issues.
