Endorsements

"This important, lucid book informs readers about recent trends in technical scholarship and offers convincing insights into the Psalter's sociological background and social-justice implications. The author, one of America's most highly regarded biblical scholars, writes both about the original meaning of the psalms and about their use or misuse in modern churches."
--David M. Hay
The Christian Century
