Product Description

Introduces literary, historical, and theological issues found in the Book of Psalms

Biblical texts create worlds of meaning and invite readers to enter them.  When readers enter such textual worlds, which are often strange and complex, they are confronted with theological claims.  With this in mind, the purpose of the Interpreting Biblical Texts series is to help serious readers in their experience of reading and interpreting, by providing guides for their journeys into textual worlds.  The controlling perspective is expressed in the operative word of the title—interpreting.  The primary focus of the series is not so much on the world behind the texts or out of which the texts have arisen as on the worlds created by the texts in their engagement with readers.

The focus of the volume moves from the smallest to the largest of scales, from an examination of poetic segments to considerations of God and the world through the psalmists’ eyes. The author will present new slants and questions that equip the reader with various tools of interpretation while leaving issues open for the reader’s further exploration.

Included are discussions of Psalms as Hebrew poetry, species, performance, corpus, anthropology, and theology.
