Psalm research has become a fascinating point of growth in Old Testament scholarship and the results have been largely positive, particularly valuable for those seeking a theological understanding of the Psalter. However, the growth rate has made the field somewhat difficult to navigate. This commentary gathers the research and creates an accessible guide. Geoffrey Grogan begins by expounding and evaluating the main scholarly approaches to Psalms. He includes issues raised by the superscriptions ? treating them with seriousness ? with special attention given to the Davidic references. He then provides an exegesis of each psalm, in which the emphasis is on their distinctive messages, though classification is not ignored. Grogan follows with a full survey of the Psalter?'s theological themes, highlighting the theological implications of its fivefold arrangement. He continues with a consideration of the massive contribution the Psalter makes to biblical theology, including the way the psalms were used and interpreted by Jesus and the New Testament writers. Closing with an analysis of the contemporary relevance of the Psalms, Grogan?'s work shows the considerable value the Psalter has to guide and challenge us as we face the problems of the church and the world today.
