The Abingdon Old Testament Commentaries series is designed to provide critical yet accessible information for college and seminary students as well as pastors. In Psalms 73-150, Clifford explains the pattern and progression within the Psalms while attending to the richness of their words and the texture of their imagery.
This second volume completes Richard Clifford's Commentary on the Psalms. The rich imagery of the Psalms has guided and molded pray-ers since ancient times. As we seek to understand the threads and colors of the Psalms, Clifford helps us see their inner dramatic logic, how they organize the experience and desires of the pray-er, and how they seek to move us. His primary concern is to help readers see the pattern and progression within the Psalms, while attending to their complex, evocative nature.
