"As liturgical and devotional texts the Psalms occupy aunique place in Jewish and Christian tradition. In thisimpressively wide ranging study, Sue Gillingham explores how overthe centuries the Psalms have inspired, been prayed, analyzed,interpreted and spoken with an extraordinary resonance to manykinds of human need. Musicians, liturgists and students ofliterature as well as theologians, clergy and Christian and Jewishteachers, will find fresh perspectives and new insights in thismagisterial survey. We await with anticipation the second volume inwhich against this background the interpretation of individualpsalms will be considered."
