In this third and final volume of his commentary on the book of Psalms, Old Testament scholar John Goldingay provides fresh insights on Psalms 90-150. Writing with a scholar's eye and a pastor's heart, he considers the literary, historical, and grammatical dimensions of the text as well as its theological implications.The Baker Commentary on the Old Testament Wisdom and Psalms series is tailored to the distinctives of poetry and Wisdom literature. The series features emphasis on the message of the biblical book; special attention to poetic structure and literary devices; incisive comments based on the author's translation of the Hebrew text; exegetical rigor that incorporates linguistic, historical, and canonical insights; closing reflections on each section that explore the text's theological dimensions; and textual notes that highlight important features of the Hebrew text."[Goldingay] bring[s] texts alive for readers today. . . . His considerable scholarship opens the Psalms in the service of theological and ethical reflection and of the spiritual life. Literary and verbal features of the texts appear in clear, digestible amounts, and Goldingay's theological reflections make the book a valuable resource."--Kathleen O'Connor, Christian Century"This commentary is a worthwhile addition to the library of every Old Testament scholar, theological student, and perhaps especially every minister who needs to prepare sermons from the Psalter. . . . It contains a treasury of learning and recent research into the Psalms. Its strongest feature might be the stimulating and challenging remarks the author makes in the discussion of the theology of each psalm."--Philippus J. Botha, Review of Biblical Literature"Scholars will appreciate especially John Goldingay's annotated translations; his careful and detailed textual analyses, often containing fresh insights and creative interpretive directions; and the extensive bibliographical information contained in the footnotes. Seminary students should appreciate Goldingay's elegant and eloquent modeling of how rigorous academic work can be done explicitly in the service of the church and its ministry. Ministers and Bible study leaders (along with some scholars and most seminary students) will appreciate Goldingay's helpful and faithful theological reflections. . . . The result is an engaging and instructive invitation to claim the Psalms as sources for understanding and practicing the church's worship, spirituality, and mission."--J. Clinton McCann Jr., Interpretation
