A new edition of this well respected work John Hargreaves introduces and studies in detail twenty of the most commonly used Psalms, with general notes on the historical and literary background of the book of Psalms as a whole and on some of the ways in which different Churches use Psalms in their worship today. Besides the study questions, discussion themes, and topical photographs characteristic of the series, examples of musical settings from various countries enhance the book's usefulness for pastors and teachers as well as theological students in all parts of the world.
In this thorough and engagingly written book, John Hargreaves takes us deeper into the Psalms, their word and their meaning both for the writers and for us today. His clear exposition is matched by his deep understanding of the Psalms, as historical documents and living prayers of the soul, resulting in a book that is ideal for those studying the Psalms academically or exploring them devotionally. A Guide to Psalms is not only to be read but to be used: at the end of each section there is a range of questions to aid reflection, making this a book to which readers will return again and again, finding fresh insights and new depths in these powerful ancient texts.
