The Psalms have resulted in controversies between Jews and Christians over the centuries and it is only from the mid twentieth century onwards that the two traditions have worked side by side in the academy at least. This is one of the very few volumes on the psalms to incorporate scholarship from both these traditions for nearly a century, and the result is a rich celebration of these extraordinary ancient songs.

This innovative essay collection draws together internationally renowned Jewish and Christian scholars of the Psalms, with one tradition responding to the other, in areas as diverse as Qumran studies, Medieval Jewish interpretation, Reception History, Liturgical Psalters and Chagall's Church Windows and more recent Literary Studies of the Psalter as a Book. The range of topics chosen will be of interest not only to those specializing in the Psalms but also to others interested more generally in biblical studies. Several musical and artistic representations of selected psalms are also included and the book includes a colour plate section which illustrates several of the chapters.

About the Author:


Susan Gillingham is Fellow and Tutor in Theology, Worcester College, Oxford; Reader in Old Testament, Oxford University.

Review:


"[T]his is indeed a helpful and stimulating examination of a number of themes in contemporary study of the Psalter." --David G. Firth, The Journal of Theological Studies


"These collected essays are a good example of how listening to those from another tradition could very well advance the scholarship of any given area of biblical studies. Any serious scholar or student of the Psalter should read this work." --Joshua E. Stewart, Journal for the Evangelical Study of the Old Testament


"[T]his is not a typical proceedings of a highbrow conference. Its participants were indeed drawn from the crème de la crème of contemporary Psalm scholarship. But it is not merely a collection of scholarly papers with a common theme... the kind of subject matter any thoughtful person that is drawn to the Psalms would delight to read." --Stuart D. Robertson, Shofar


"This is an above-average collection of essays from which virtually any scholar, Jewish or Christian, can read with profit." --Eugene J. Fisher, Catholic Biblical Quarterly
