Product Description

Psalms by James L. Mays is part of the Interpretation series published by John Knox Press. This volume covers all of the psalms in 457 pages. Each psalm is given a discussion which does not exceed eight pages, and some are given one page at most. The format is terse, not notated, and is designed for teaching or preaching. The biblical text is the NRSV translation (not included), and the comments are by a person who has spent considerable time teaching the subject at the college/seminary level. The book is not written from an evangelical stand point, but is pointed toward helping the pastor/teacher reach his/her audience with the aspects of biblical usage of a given psalm.

Publisher's Description

The Psalms have been at the center of Christian faith and piety for centuries. Now, one of the foremost interpreters of the Psalms explores how they can still claim that place today. In this commentary, James L. Mays sets forth what the Psalms say about God, creation, humanity, and the life of faith. Mays proceeds with an awareness that the Psalms were originally composed for worship, and so he provides an understanding of the psalms as praise and prayer.

Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching is a distinctive resource for those who interpret the Bible in the church. Planned and written specifically for teaching and preaching needs, this critically acclaimed biblical commentary is a major contribution to scholarship and ministry.
