Riassunto: This is the second of a three-volume commentary on the Psalms, combining literary, historical, grammatical, and theological insight in a widely accessible manner. One of today's foremost experts on biblical theology, John Goldingay covers Psalms 42-89 with his own translation of each passage, followed by interpretive comments and theological implications.
"The book of Psalms is the literary sanctuary; a holy place where humans share their joys and struggles with brutal honesty in God's presence," writes Tremper Longman III, editor of the Baker Commentary on the Old Testament Wisdom and Psalms series. Pastors, seminary students, scholars, and Bible study leaders will enjoy this accessible and enriching volume. This is the fourth volume in the series.
Dal risvolto interno:
"Once again, John Goldingay has given us exemplary scholarship that will serve both church and academy very well indeed. The commentary is filled with mature theological insights, fresh ideas, and thoughtful reflections for contemporary appropriation."
-- Terence E. Fretheim, Elva B. Lovell Professor of Old Testament, Luther Seminary
"Pastors will benefit from Goldingay's lucid discussion of interpretive issues, which is always informed by the faith of the church. Scholars will be well served by the insightful textual notes and extensive bibliography. In sum, this volume is a welcome resource for the study of the Psalms from which many different readers may glean."
-- Jerome F. D. Creach, Robert C. Holland Professor of Old Testament, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary
"John Goldingay has come to this commentary after extensive work in other areas of biblical study. He has written a major commentary that incorporates solid, mainline scholarship, and it belongs with leading commentaries on the Psalter. His readers will find him to be a competent, mature, and careful guide in interpreting the Psalms. I recommend his work, and I look forward to further commentary from him."
-- Marvin E. Tate, senior professor of Old Testament, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
The Book of Psalms is the Bible's book of prayer and praise that provides us with language and guidance for our communion with God. It provides a vital link between humanity and God--a link that we ignore to our impoverishment, says John Goldingay.
In this volume, Goldingay seeks to let the Psalms speak their own message and address Christian thinking, theology, and spirituality without being subjugated to a particular way of reading the New Testament. Each chapter of the commentary proper contains the author's translation of the psalm, showing in English some of the salient features of the Hebrew text. An interpretation of the psalm, section by section, follows. Goldingay concludes each chapter with theological reflection that helps readers discover the contemporary relevance of the message of each psalm. The book also includes a glossary of the vocabulary of Psalms 42-89, noting how certain words are used to convey critical concepts. This insightful commentary will bring the Psalms to life for a new generation of students.
