Psalms and Liturgy (Journal For The Study Of The Old Testament Supplement Series)
This book offers unique insights into the Psalms and sketches a variety of interpretative possibilities. The exposition of Psalm texts against the background of their different historical and/or cultic settings in the ancient Near East sets a firm basis for their reapplication in the liturgy today. In the history of interpretation the Psalms have also proven themselves to be natural texts for liturgical use. This scholarly effort thus portrays in various ways the importance of the Psalms for their reviving interpretation and application in the liturgy. Part of the Journal for the Study of the Old Testament Supplement Series.
