The Psalms as Christian Worship: An Historical Commentary

Bruce K. Waltke, James M. Houston

Paperback 2010-11-22

A rich and meaty dual study of biblical psalms??This unique collaboration by two esteemed evangelical scholars blends a verse-by-verse exposition of selected psalms with a history of their interpretation in the church from the time of the apostles to the present. ??Bruce Waltke, who has been teaching and preaching the book of Psalms for over fifty years, skillfully establishes the meaning of the Hebrew text through the careful sort of exegesis that he is especially known for. James Houston traces the church's interpretation and use of these psalms throughout the history of Christianity; as part of his historical approach, he has commissioned fresh translations of numerous Latin and Middle English texts. ??A masterly "devotional commentary," Waltke and Houston's Psalms will serve to enrich the lives of contemporary Christians and to deepen the church's corporate worship. Displaying their respective strengths throughout these pages, Waltke and Houston bring together the two voices of the Holy Spirit - heard infallibly in Scripture and edifyingly in the church's response - in a rare and illuminating combination.?

Publisher Description

This collaboration by two esteemed evangelical scholars blends a verse-by-verse exposition of select psalms with a history of their interpretation in the church from the time of the apostles to the present. Bruce Waltke, who has been teaching and preaching the book of Psalms for over fifty years, skillfully establishes the meaning of the Hebrew text through the careful exegesis for which he is well known. James Houston traces the church's historical interpretation and use of these psalms, highlighting their deep spiritual significance to Christians through the ages. Waltke and Houston focus their in-depth commentary on thirteen psalms that represent various genres and perspectives or hold special significance for Christian faith and the life of the church, including Psalm 1, Psalm 23, Psalm 51, and Psalm 139. While much modern scholarship has tended to "despiritualize" the Psalms, Waltke and Houston's "sacred hermeneutic" listens closely to the two voices of the Holy Spirit heard infallibly in Scripture and edifyingly in the church's response. A masterly historical-devotional commentary, The Psalms as Christian Worship will deepen the church's worship and enrich the faith and life of contemporary Christians. - Publisher.
