Item description for Commentary-Psalms 1-50 (Word Biblical Commentary V19) by Peterc Craigie, Marvin E. Tate & Thomas Nelson Publishers...
Overview Dr. Craigie communicates both the emotional and the theological impact of the Psalms as originally experienced by the people of Israel in their public worship and in private devotions.
His careful analysis will give the modern reader a new appreciation of the reality that life and faith, history and liturgy, struggle and prayer, are inseparable in the life of the people of God.
Dr. Tate brings Craigie's volume up to date by incorporating references to the very latest in biblical scholarship on the Psalms.
Peter Craigie demonstrates in this commentary that the biblical psalms express "the most profound of human feelings and insights-prayer, praise, liturgy, wisdom and lament." Through careful analysis of language and form, he communicates both the emotional and theological impact of the psalms as originally experienced by the people of Israel at public worship and in private devotions.
Professor Craigie's translations and interpretations of each of the first fifty psalms apply insights into the Hebrew language and Israel's literature drawn from Ugaritic texts. He provides a careful and critical analysis of various controversial proposals based on these sources for understanding the early substance and later form of the Psalter.
This revision of WBC 19 by Marvin Tate preserves all of Professor Craigie's original exposition and augments it with an extensive supplement that updates the bibliographies and documents the explosive growth in Psalm studies in the last two decades of the twentieth century. Professor Tate's comprehensive additions survey and evaluate new trends in the scholarship on: Hebrew PoetryPsalms ExegesisThe Nature of the Psalter
The psalms are central parts of the worshiping life of Jewish and Christian communities, and are the roots of the musical heritage of both traditions. Dr. Craigie's and Dr. Tate's careful analyses will give the reader a new appreciation of the reality that life and faith, history and liturgy, and struggle and prayer are inseparable in the life of the people of God.

Word Biblical Commentary: Psalms 1-50 Jan 28, 2008
Word Biblical commentary is a great semi-advanced treatment of the various books in the bible. There are many good word studies found, few grammatical observations, and though the authors include theological significance, the conclusions are not particularly profound. Great introduction to each psalm as the original, compositional, anthological and ritual settings are identified and other commentaries with discussions in these areas are referred to though not fully summarized.
