Product Description

The prayer and hymnbook of ancient Israel is a favorite with modern churchgoers. Psalms: The Two Horizons Commentary offers both theological exegesis and theological reflection. This theological commentary is primarily aimed at students and pastors, and therefore features a lengthy introduction which discusses the scholarly views, various criticisms (source, redaction, etc.) related to exegesis, use of the Psalms today, and authorship issues. The commentary continues with section-by-section exegesis of the text using the NIV and gender inclusive language, except where it misrepresents the culture of the text. Theological horizons of the Psalms such as key theological terms, contribution of the Psalter to biblical theology, and the Psalter's relevance to present day theology are then discussed, and a helpful sermon preparation appendix is included.

Publisher's Description

Geoffrey Grogan here tackles the growing field of Psalms research and presents an accessible theological treatment of the Psalter. He begins by surveying and evaluating the main scholarly approaches to Psalms and then provides exegesis of all the psalms, emphasizing their distinctive messages.

Grogan follows with a full discussion of the Psalter's theological themes, highlighting the implications of its fivefold arrangement. He considers the massive contribution of the Psalter to biblical theology, including the way the psalms were used and interpreted by Jesus and the New Testament writers. The volume closes with an analysis of the contemporary relevance of the Psalms and a step-by-step guide to preparing a Psalms sermon, based on Psalm 8.

Series Overview

Two features distinguish The Two Horizons Old Testamet Commentary series: theological exegesis and theological reflection.

Exegesis since the Reformation era and especially in the past two hundred years emphasized careful attention to philology, grammar, syntax, and concerns of a historical nature. More recently, commentary has expanded to include social-scientific, political, or canonical questions and more.

Without slighting the significance of those sorts of questions, scholars in The Two Horizons Old Testamet Commentary locate their primary interests on theological readings of texts, past and present. The result is a paragraph-by-paragraph engagement with the text that is deliberately theological in focus.

Theological reflection in The Two Horizons Old Testamet Commentary takes many forms, including locating each Old Testament book in relation to the whole of Scripture — asking what the biblical book contributes to biblical theology — and in conversation with constructive theology of today. How commentators engage in the work of theological reflection will differ from book to book, depending on their particular theological tradition and how they perceive the work of biblical theology and theological hermeneutics. This heterogeneity derives as well from the relative infancy of the project of theological interpretation of Scripture in modern times and from the challenge of grappling with a book’s message in its ancient context, in the canon of Scripture and history of interpretation, and for life in the admittedly diverse Western world at the beginning of the twenty-first century.

The Two Horizons Old Testamet Commentary is written primarily for students, pastors, and other Christian leaders seeking to engage in theological interpretation of Scripture.

Reviews

J. Alec Motyer — author of The Prophecy of Isaiah "Here is a work as theological as the Psalms deserve, and as devotionally warm as they demand. This commentary is precisely what we would expect from Geoffrey Grogan — magnificently researched, written with an easy grace that carries the reader along, seminal where brevity is required. It is a delight to be in the company of one who loves the Psalms as richly as he knows them, whose spirituality runs as deep as his scholarship, and whose solid independence of judgment makes him a reliable guide through the huge literature and diverse theories that the Psalms have attracted."

Leslie C. Allen — Fuller Theological Seminary "Geoffrey Grogan whetted readers’ appetites with his earlier work on the theology of the Psalms. A proven exegete and theologian, he now brings this double gift to the text. He also provides an introduction to the Psalms as ancient literature. In keeping with the Two Horizons series, he presents the theology of the Psalter and evaluates it in terms of the Bible and Christian doctrine."

Ted Herbert — International Christian College, Glasgow "Grogan’s wide writing interests spanning the Old and New Testaments and theology, combined with his warm personal faith, clear writing style, and decades of living with the Psalms, have resulted in this well-informed, insightful, and useful theologically focused commentary."
