Craig Broyles examines the Psalms as a diverse collection of poems whose main roots are in Jerusalem s worship services. Both in the past and in the present, they provide dynamic liturgies though which the worshipper encounters God often with vigorous dialogue and finds meaning for life. Broyles makes the best of contemporary scholarship on the Psalms accessible to both general readers and serious students.Using the literary method, this commentary examines linguistic detail and patterning and situates the single Psalm within the larger landscape of the Psalter. Broyles writes as one who has lived the Psalms as a scholar and as a believer. This user-friendly commentary, with its distinct fresh angle of vision on community worship, is a good find. Elmer Martens, Mennonite Brethern Biblical Seminary

From the Back Cover:

"Craig Broyles's commentary on the Psalms represents his own deep knowledge of the Psalms and a sense of the things that matter for the reading and hearing of this great Devotional and theological literature. While fully drawing upon the latest scholarly work on the Psalms, the commentary is clear and accessible, giving the interpreter/preacher sufficient grasp of what each psalm is about without overwhelming him or her with masses of detail and secondary references. His attention to the context of ancient Israel is matched by his sensitivity to the contemporary word of the Psalms to believers and to the church as a whole." -- Elmer A. Martens, Professor Emeritus of Old Testament, Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary, Fresno, California
