Overview

The Psalms: Ancient Poetry of the Spirit by Lawrence Boadt

This Anthology Brings Together 100 Psalms that have spoken most directly to the spiritual needs of the people throughout the centuries. Grouped according to their major literary types, the psalms gathered here explore almost every conceivable emotion--from the pathos of individual and community laments to the clam reflections of the wisdom psalms to the joyful exuberance of the psalms of thanksgiving. In the introduction, Boadt and Bruce, renowned Biblical scholars, look at the origins of the Psalms in ancient Israelite faith and worship and explore some of the distinctive qualities and insights Hebrew poetry holds for today's readers.
