In this revision of his classic text, Bernhard Anderson takes into account recent developments in the study of the Psalms. Continuing his focus on the poetic forms of the Psalter and the setting of the psalms in worship, he adds three new chapters: on the style of poetry in the psalms, on the penitential psalms, and on reading the book of Psalms as a whole.
Ideal for use in the classroom, by church groups, and by individuals, Out of the Depths offers a fresh reading of the Psalms and examines their enduring relevance to today's theological issues.
