Product Description

According to author Hassell Bullock, "No collection of poems has ever excercised as much influence on the Western world as the Book of Psalms." The attraction for Jews, Christians, as well as nonbelievers is surely the personal element that pervades these poems, which describe the human situation in all its complexity. Through the Psalms are perhaps the most familiar portion of the Hebrew Bible,they are also among the most difficult to interpret. As a result, Bullock has created this guide to introduce lay readers and students to the study and interpretation of the Psalms. Like other volumes in teh Encountering Biblical Studies series, Encountering the Book of Psalms can be used for personal study, sermon preparation, or in Sunday school classes. Included are a number of helpful features, including chapter objectives and outlines, sidebars, charts, and illustrations.

Publisher's Description

According to author Hassell Bullock, "No collection of poems has ever exercised as much influence on the Western world as the Book of Psalms." The attraction for Jews, Christians, and others is surely the personal element that pervades these poems, which describe the human situation in all its complexity. Though the Psalms are perhaps the most familiar portion of the Hebrew Bible, they are also among the most difficult to interpret. As a result, Bullock has created this guide to introduce students to the study and interpretation of the Psalms.

Encountering the Book of Psalms
begins by examining literary and hermeneutical dimensions. Bullock discusses the nature, structure, and authorship of the Psalter and provides readers with specific principles for interpretation. He goes on to examine the use of Psalms in worship from the ancient world to the twenty-first century. He further explores how the psalmists used historical reflection to serve their theological purposes, and he concludes by investigating different types of psalms (e.g., praise, lament, and wisdom).

Like other volumes in the Encountering Biblical Studies series, Encountering the Book of Psalms is designed for classroom use and includes a number of helpful features, including chapter objectives and outlines, sidebars, charts, and illustrations.
