About This Item
And by far, more than any other books of the Bible, it was the Psalms that were most memorized, recited, and hand copied. This book will indeed speak new inspiration to God's people today! I have been teaching the book of Psalms for years and have found it important to have a holistic approach to it. As one of the church's greatest treasures, the church needs to understand how it speaks to us today.
Schmutzer and Howard's book hits all these points! This work is paradigmatic for an evangelical approach to the Bible, wherein the scholarship and spirituality intertwine with one another.
The Psalms: Language For All Seasons of The Soul
This volume is a useful tool for every student of the Bible, pastor, and preacher alike. It is good to have the Psalms back. Its editors and authors share a high view of God's Word and address contemporary issues related to the Psalms with wisdom, keen insights and a passion for God's glory. These essays provide many wonderful introductions to that great conversation. The holistic ethos underlying the essays—which seeks to overcome conventional scholarly separation of exegesis from tradition, individual piety from community, interpretation from faith and biblical theology from preaching—is both bold and ambitious but important and necessary.
Joy and delight.
Frustration and lament. Worship and praise. The entire canvas of human emotions finds its expression in the Psalms. Yet this ancient hymnbook is rarely mined to its sublime depths.
The Psalms: Language for All Seasons of the Soul
Read from the masters and gain keen insights into this much loved portion of Scripture. Sometimes I measure books by how great a push they give you to preach. With the survey of the land of Psalms studies in the twenty-first century completed, Part 2 covers issues related to the Psalms of praise and Part 3 covers Psalms of lament. Finally, Part 5 presents edited versions of four contemporary sermons on selected Psalms.
As such, many of the essays are rather technical and may be difficult to be fully appreciated by those without formal theological training and proficiency in Hebrew. This is not to say that laymen cannot enjoy and benefit from the book; but it is written at an academic level and is primarily geared toward pastors and students and graduates of Bible college and seminary. I really appreciate that the editors chose to end the collection of academic papers with four sermons. Biblical and theological studies should be in service of the church, not confined within the ivory towers of academia.
Ending the book in this way is a marvelous demonstration and affirmation of this truth.
