Reviews - What do customers think about Psalms 1-59 (Continental Commentaries)?
Haiku Review--Psalms 1-59: A Continental Commentary (Continental Commentaries) Dec 30, 2006
Both brilliant and sad:
Great insight to Hebrew poems,
but buys "redaction."
excellent hebrew poetry translation and commentary Mar 6, 1999
This commentary (psalm 1-59 and 60-150) distinquishes from other psalm commentaries by its focus on the hebrew poetry, text and its meaning. Kraus extensive and thorough research reflects itself in an analytical approach and provides valuable information for prachers, students and church members.
