Product Description

The canonical shape of the Hebrew Bible reveals the footprints of the communities of faith that formed that literature. The author explores the process by which the postexilic community selected, appropriated, and shaped various psalms into the Hebrew Psalter. The Psalter, she concludes, tells its own story of the history of ancient Israel and gives its shaping community and subsequent believing communities a rationale for continued existence as a people with God as their king.
