Editorial Reviews

"Perceptive, erudite, delightful."
—Elie Wiesel

"This book is the result of a lifetime of study of the Hebrew Bible by a mature scholar whose love of the Tanakh, and especially of the Psalter, shines through on every page. It is a beautiful book written in a poetic style worthy of the psalms themselves."
—James A. Sanders, Professor of Biblical Studies, The School of Theology at Claremont, and President of the Ancient Biblical Manuscript Center

"A towering scholar elucidates not only the scholarly issues involved in the psalms, but also the way these powerful religious texts impart their emotional and spiritual message. Sarna leaves us with a fresh understanding of the Psalter that will inspire Jew and Christian alike."
—Hershel Shanks, Editor of Bible Review and Biblical Archaeology Review

"The psalms speak to every aspect of the human condition, and are as timely today as when they were first written. Their message comes through with strength and beauty in Nahum Sarna's work."
—Robert McAfee Brown, Professor Emeritus of Theology and Ethics, Pacific School of Religion
