Reviews - What do customers think about Interpreting the Psalms: An Exegetical Handbook (Handbooks for Old Testament Exegesis)?

Great handbook for exegeting the Psalms...  Jun 25, 2009
Futato's work has become one of the first books I grab when I'm doing exegesis of a Psalm in preparation for preaching or teaching. Futato gives foundational exegetical help for making sense of the Psalms; he deals with Hebrew poetic structure and all it's nuances.

He gives a great treatment of Colic parallelism with numerous examples of bi-colic, tri-colic, etc. forms of parallelisms and offers fantastic assistance at making sense of the Psalms. This is a work of a medium technical level, so knowledge of the original languages is helpful but not necessary. This book is NOT a commentary, but if does offer great exegetical insights into many of the Psalms that he uses as examples. Futato will help save you from exegetical fallacies and making the Psalms say something that they do not.

This text is much cheaper than Wilfred Watson's "Classical Hebrew Poetry" and does not contain the high level of technical interaction with the Hebrew text that Watson's book offers, but I recommend this book as an introduction and supplement to Watson's work to help you "rightly divide" the Psalms.

The Psalms are SO abused and are the spring from which a lot of "spiritual sounding heresy" is drawn. I would strongly recommend Frederic Clarke Putnam's "Hebrew Bible Insert", Robert Chisolm's "From Exegesis to Exposition", Daniel J. Estes "Handbook on the Wisdom Books and Psalms" and Walter Kaiser's "Toward an Exegetical Theology" as supplements and accessories to this work. The Psalms are not difficult to interpret, but they are generally, and grossly, mishandled by well meaning exegetes who don't understand Hebrew Poetry or try to find Christ hiding under every pebble.
