Praise for the Print Edition
James Waltner's immense study of the Psalms merits close attention and wide use. It is a commentary that is well informed on critical issues but, more importantly, is alive and alert to theological, pastoral concerns. Waltner reads the Psalms in and for the church, and makes connections that will serve the pastoral, liturgical, devotional life of the church. We can be grateful for this important contribution.

Like the Psalms themselves, Waltner's commentary should inspire a deeper learning of God's ways and a deeper devotion to the God who listens. Quite readable and clear, Waltner's style keeps the reader's interest and provides the reader with a deep respect for the sublime poetry of the Psalms.
