This work by Nancy deClaissé-Walford, Rolf Jacobson, and Beth Tanner is the most complete and detailed one–volume commentary available on the Psalms. Significantly, the volume reflects the combined insights of three superior (younger) biblical scholars.

DeClaissé-Walford, Jacobson, and Tanner offer a succinct introduction to the Psalter, a new translation of each psalm that takes special account of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and individual entries on each psalm unit. Throughout the book they draw on state–of–the–art research on the canonical shape and shaping of the Psalter and evidence a nuanced attention to the poetic nature of Psalms.

From careful text-critical and philological analysis to thoughtful theological and pastoral reflections, the authors have created a most useful commentary on the Psalms. While valuable to scholars, these interpretations will be especially helpful to pastors in their teaching and preaching ministry.

    I was disappointed with this Commentary not so much because it was poor but because the other Commentaries I had used in this series were so excellent. It is a one volume commentary and is similar to other one volume commentaries on Psalms. I thought the Expositors commentary had more textual level comment and more homeitical material. Although it is old I found Lange's one volume on Psalms more useful for preaching as it was more personal. I only write this as a caution to others who may have found the other volumes in this series to be so excellent.
