Approaching the Psalms through Canonical, Form and Reader Response Criticism

December 14, 2008

Proposed principle one: When one begins approaching the Psalms through Canonical, Form and Reader Response Criticism the first stage must include the determining of the period when the Canonical Psalter was composed and ‘read’.

Proposed principle two: The use of the Psalter must also be discovered.

Proposed principle three: Once the period when the Canonical Psalter was composed has been determined and the use of the Psalter discovered there needs be an historical reconstruction of the context in which the Canonical Psalter was composed and ‘read’.

Until these steps have been completed any findings will be open to serious problems.
