9780826488954: The Psalms: A Historical and Spiritual Commentary with an Introduction and New Translation (Continuum Biblical Studies)

Remarkably enough, there is a scarcity of modern commentaries on the Psalms for the more general reader, though after the Gospels, they are probably the most widely-read part of the Bible.

No one is more qualified to write on the Psalms than John Eaton. He is a distinguished Old Testament scholar and has spent a lifetime studying the Psalms. This commentary is addressed to the wide readership. There is a long and highly readable 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 that 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 is recognized as one of the world's leading experts on Psalms: this commentary is the culmination of his life's work.

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.

About the Author:

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.
