John Goldingay's three-volume commentary on the book of Psalms combines literary, historical, grammatical, and theological insights in a widely accessible manner. One of today's foremost experts on biblical theology, Goldingay covers the Psalms with his own translation of each passage, followed by interpretive comments and discussion of the theological implications.
Tremper Longman III, editor of the Baker Commentary on the Old Testament Wisdom and Psalms series, noted, "The book of Psalms is the literary sanctuary; a holy place where humans share their joys and struggles with brutal honesty in God's presence,". These resources are both scholarly and readable, presenting an historical, theological, and applicable survey of the riches of Wisdom literature. Pastors, seminary students, scholars, and Bible study leaders will enjoy this enriching three-volume commentary set.
This commentary is a worthwhile addition to the library of every Old Testament scholar, theological student, and perhaps especially every minister who needs to prepare sermons from the Psalter. . . . It contains a treasury of learning and recent research into the Psalms.
—Philippus J. Botha, Review of Biblical Literature
This is a fine commentary on the first part of the book of Psalms, combining excellent scholarship and deep, practical spiritual reflection. Readers will find it to be an invaluable resource for their own life journeys, not least in the constructive challenge it presents to some modern Christian understandings of biblical spirituality.
—Iain Provan, Marshall Sheppard Professor of Biblical Studies, Regent College
