Craig Broyles examines the Psalms as a diverse collection of poems whose main roots are in Jerusalem’s worship services. Both in the past and in the present, they provide dynamic liturgies though which the worshipper encounters God—often with vigorous dialogue—and finds meaning for life. Broyles makes the best of contemporary scholarship on the Psalms accessible to both general readers and serious students.

"Using the literary method, this commentary examines linguistic detail and patterning and situates the single Psalm within the larger landscape of the Psalter. Broyles writes as one who has lived the Psalms as a scholar and as a believer. This user-friendly commentary, with its distinct fresh angle of vision on community worship, is a good find."
—Elmer Martens, Mennonite Brethern Biblical Seminary
