Exposing the Psalms

Peter Nevland

Exposing the Psalms

Peter Nevland

$13.99

Paperback

'You have to experience the Psalms to understand them. They're art, not essays. You understand art when it surrounds and barrages your senses, like it would at a gallery, a museum, or surrounded by paint and canvasses in an artist's studio. This book is a gallery where you can play with the art.' - Peter Nevland

The introduction of this book encourages readers to 'mind the gap' between the distant ancient culture of the psalmists and our current world. The author outlines his method of interpreting the psalms (a nine-step interpretive process) before proceeding to explore 30 of the 150 psalms.

The book has an unusual design - more like a montage of comments than a commentary in the traditional sense. It doesn't examine the selected psalms in their canonical order, but starts with Psalm 45, goes to 85, then to 23, then to 100, 24, and so on. Each commentary on the psalm is followed by a poem written by the author - a kind of lyrical exploration of some of the ideas in the psalm, which is, of course, itself a lyrical medium.

'Excellent - a great balance of popular accessibility and theological explanation.' - Graham Kendrick
