Product Description

The book of Psalms is perhaps the most frequently used book of the Old Testament. We sing them, pray them, and contemplate their application to our lives during corporate and person worship. In the psalms we encounter God, others, and ourselves in life's joys and sorrows, tragedies and triumphs. They also present interpretive challenges. Their poetic form has few if any points of contact with English poetry. Their analogies are far from what today can relate to. How to interpret the psalms in order to use them effectively in our own lives and in the lives of others is the focus of this volume.

The Handbooks for Old Testament Exegesis series seeks to present the reader with a better understanding of the different Old Testament genres, and provide strategies for preaching and teaching genres. These volumes are primarily intended to serve as textbooks for graduate-level exegesis courses that assume a basic knowledge of Hebrew. However, the series is also accessible to those without a working knowledge of Hebrew, in that an English translation is always given whenever Hebrew is used.

Publisher's Description

This second contribution to the "Handbooks for Old Testament Exegesis" series continues the admirable tradition set by Robert B. Chisholm Jr. in "Interpreting the Historical Books." A valuable resource for pastors and students, "Interpreting the Psalms" begins by explaining the nature of Hebrew poetry and the purpose of the Psalms. An accomplished scholar of the Psalms, Mark Futato next explores issues related to properly interpreting Israel's songbook, and concludes with a sample of moving from interpretation to proclamation. A glossary is included.
