Overview

• An accessible commentary on a critically important canonical book by a highlyregarded biblical scholar and popular author

• Newest in the commentary series sponsored by the Anglican Association of
Biblical Scholars

• Includes a study guide for group or individual use and reflection

Written in accessible language and sensitive to those who have little or no experience in reading the Bible, each book in the Conversations with Scripture series focuses on exploring the historical and critical background of the biblical texts, while illustrating how these centuries-old writings still speak to us today.

Countryman brings his considerable biblical studies erudition as well as his skills as a popular writer and published poet to bear on the Psalms. Though an accomplished scholar of the New Testament, Countryman illumines the Psalms with insight and creativity. Readers will experience this most beloved part of the scriptural canon in a fresh and exciting way.
