This commentary is addressed to the widest possible readership. There is a long introduction giving a background to the Psalms; then follow the 150 Psalms, each in Eaton's translation. He explains the background to the Psalms and their content in a way which makes them interesting and relevant to the present. The discussion of each psalm ends with a related Christian prayer, either from the tradition or written by Eaton himself.

John Eaton lectured in Old Testament at the University of Birmingham until his retirement. He is the author of many books, especially on aspects of the Psalms.

Review:

'wide ranging and very readable...His psalms are a joy to read...He managed to capture both the sense and the poetry. His comments likewise are clear and concise...Eaton is very good at painting a picture of the psalms being usedin worship...It is both a historical and spiritual commentary. It deserves to be widely read. (Sue Groom Anvil)

John Eaton provides a Christian commentary that would be appropriate for the undergraduate setting in an ecclesiastical institution. This is a clearly written work and offers much assistance for the reader as a concise, straightforward commentary on the text.
