Item description for Psalms (Berit Olam Series) by Konrad Schaefer, David W. Cotter & Jerome T. Walsh...

Overview
In "Psalms", Schaefer focuses on the structure of each psalm, its dramatic plot, modes of discourse, rhetorical features, and effective use of imagery to portray theology and the spiritual life. Schaefter portrays each poem's inner dynamic to acquaint readers with the poet and the community which prayed and preserved the composition, allowing believers to transpose in the contemporary situation.

Publishers Description

The psalms are masterful poems that echo the tenors of community life and worship as they project the scope of the human drama from lament to praise. They chart a profound and vital relationship with God, with al the ups and downs that this relationship implies. Konrad Schaefer's concise commentary on the psalms relates their poetic elements while respecting their historical context and traditional use in the liturgy and, more importantly, their ultimate value as a springboard to private and communal prayer.

In "Psalms," Schaefer focuses on the structure of each psalm, its dramatic plot, the modes of discourse, the rhetorical features, and the effective use of imagery to portray theology and the spiritual life.

"Psalms" is for those who would like to pray the psalms with more intensity of meaning; for those willing to touch the biblical world and taste of its fruit in the Word of God; and for devoted readers of the Bible to become more expert as it helps experts become more devoted.

Chapters are Introduction," "Book One (Psalms 1-41)," "Book Two (Psalms 42-72)," "Book Three (Psalms 73-89)," "Book Four (Psalms 90-106)," and "Book Five (Psalms 107-150)."

Reviews - What do customers think about Psalms (Berit Olam Series)?

Enlightening and readable  Sep 12, 2009
This book is a wonderful resource for anyone who reads, prays, or sings the psalms. While I am neither a Hebrew scholar nor a theologian, I work with these texts constantly as a musician. Dom Shafer's writing enriches my understanding of the poetry in such a way that my musical understanding of the psalms has been broadened.

The psalms are marvels of poetry and prayer. And this book will help you see how that is so. Highly recommended.
