Dr. Brueggemann describes the human cries of anguish and the exultations of praise expressed in the Psalms.


"This important, lucid book informs readers about recent trends in technical scholarship and offers convincing insights into the Psalter's sociological background and social-justice implications. The author, one of America's most highly regarded biblical scholars, writes both about the original meaning of the psalms and about their use or misuse in modern churches."
--David M. Hay
The Christian Century


"One is constantly surprised by the insights that emerge and the wide range of human experience that is touched."
--Terrance Fretheim
