Overview

Renowned biblical scholar Roland E. Murphy has written The Gift of the Psalms to make their rich and deep messages accessible to everyone.

In Part One, Murphy first discusses the various types of psalms, the major literary features of the psalms, and Christian interpretation of the psalms over the centuries. A second chapter examines important terms and theological concepts in the psalms such as God, creation, salvation, enemies, and suffering. A third chapter explores how the psalms can foster "conversation with God" for contemporary readers in the context either of public worship or private meditation.

In Part Two, Murphy comments concisely on each psalm, illuminating key words and phrases and explaining allusions to events in Israelite history.

The Gift of the Psalms is an ideal starting point for those who want to study the psalms--alone, in adult Bible study groups, or in prayer groups. It is for anyone who wishes to explore this important resource for contemporary believers.
