The importance of the Psalms as a testimony of the faith of ancient Israel needs little argument. But how can we open a way into this corpus of ancient poetry, which is so significant for understanding Israel’s faith? The quest for the meaning of the Psalms demands not just “What?” but also “Why?” In this volume, Broyles examines Psalms of lament, Psalms of complaint, and the distress expressed in the Psalms.
