Item description for A Rabbi Reads the Psalms (SCM Classics) by Jonathan Magonet...

This second enlarged edition of Jonathan Magonet's 1994 introduction to the Jewish reading of Psalms will be welcomed. It has become a staple of university reading lists and helped many take their first steps in understanding the poetry of the Hebrew Bible. But it also offers an insight into the different kinds of spiritual understanding to be found in Jewish tradition. For this new edition, Rabbi Magonet has added studies of Psalm 51 and 118 showing how understanding the structure, using the original Hebrew text, opens up many dimensions of meaning of two crucial texts.

Publishers Description
After teaching the Psalms for over twenty years, Magonet has found very little on rabbinical interpretation, ancient, mediaeval or modern. This is an introduction to the Hebrew text that gives access to the richness and complexity of the language of the Psalms to the non-Hebrew reader. Jonathan Magonet is Principal of Leo Baeck College, London.
