A new book in Facets: brief, brilliant treatments of vital aspects of faith and life. Reviving a publishing initiative and innovative format from Fortress Press's early days, we proudly re-introduce Facets, a series that answers contemporary calls for bold thinking, clear ideas, and words that succinctly go to the heart of the religious and moral quest. Facets offers gems of religious writing from leaders who address today's more important or pressing questions-biblical, theological, and moral. Each book, offered at an economical price, presents a special angle that uniquely illumines an area or issue.
The seasons of our lives change. Using a model of orientation-disorientation-new orientation, Brueggemann explores how the genres of the Psalms can be viewed in terms of their function. This results in fresh readings of these ancient songs that illumine their spiritual depth. The voices of the Psalms come through in all their bold realism.
