Psalms: Composition & Reception

May 9, 2009

Another interesting volume is The Book of Psalms: Composition and Reception.

Written by leading experts in the field as well as some younger scholars, The Book of Psalms: Composition and Reception offers a wide-ranging treatment of the main aspects of Psalms study. The almost 30 essays consist of two overall sections. The first section contains studies of a more general nature; commentary on or interpretation of specific Psalms; social setting; and the Psalter as book. The second section contains essays on the literary context of the Psalter (including Qumran texts); textual history and reception in Judaism and Christianity; and the theology of the Psalter. The volume ends with a cumulative bibliography and several useful indices.

Preview it here.

Of particular interest for me is J. J. M. Roberts’ “Mowinckel’s Enthronement Festival: A Review”.
