Though the Psalms are perhaps the most familiar portion of the Hebrew Bible, they are also among the most difficult to interpret. This guide helps readers study and interpret the Psalms. Bullock begins by exploring the nature, structure, and authorship of the Psalter. He examines the use of Psalms in worship, shows how psalmists used historical reflection to serve their theological purposes, and investigates different types of psalms. The book includes chapter objectives and outlines, sidebars, charts, and illustrations.
