Editorial Reviews

Marguerite Shuster
Fuller Theological Seminary

"Here is something even better than a simple completion of The Lectionary Commentary, which would be cause enough for gratitude. . . . Serious attention paid to this one book could go a long way toward remedying the scandalous neglect of the treasure of the Psalms in too much contemporary worship."

Patrick D. Miller
Princeton Theological Seminary

"Despite the rich resources available for studying the Psalms, few are as focused on their place in worship and preaching as is this volume. The responsorial Psalms of the Revised Common Lectionary are here taken up in careful and often illuminating interpretation with attention also to their interaction with other lectionary texts. The many ways that psalms can function meaningfully in the liturgical life of congregations are explored especially in John Witvliet's concluding section. I know of no work that combines practice and substance better than this lectionary commentary."

Sidney Greidanus
author of Preaching Christ from the Old Testament and Preaching Christ from Genesis

"A fascinating book — well organized, well written and edited, thorough, and informative. . . An excellent resource not only for preachers using the Revised Common Lectionary but also for those wishing to preach a series of sermons on the Psalms. In addition, worship leaders and worship committees will appreciate the many excellent ideas for using the Psalms in worship. Highly recommended."
