She introduces each of the five books of the Psalter, providing a detailed examination of those individual psalms that are either key to the shaping of the Psalter or interesting studies in poetic style. In the final chapter, deClaisse-Walford draws conclusions about the shape of the Psalter and about its story and message.

Reviews - What do customers think about Introduction to the Psalms?

Introduction To The Psalms: A Song From Ancient Israel   Jul 19, 2007
There are few scholarly works which are also as enjoyable to read as this introduction to the Psalms. Especially for those who have not considered their original context, this book brings a needed layer of depth and richness to the Psalm experience. I think college and seminary students will find this book exactly what they need.
