The Book of Psalms is perhaps the most cherished and enjoyed book in the Old Testament. Yet beyond the surface, it is also a vast, complex, and mysterious compilation of the strongest human emotions imaginable. Invitation to the Psalms asks students to explore and roam widely among the grandeur and beauty of the Psalms. This book introduces the dynamics of the biblical text, helping students become careful and attentive readers, demonstrates how to read Hebrew poetry correctly, explains the Psalter's basic genres, the concept of "the psalmist," the metaphorical world of the Psalms, and the theology of the Psalms. Enhancing the reader's experience are sidebars, discussion questions, and plenty of examples, and all without detracting from the Psalms themselves. This clear and concise guide is accessible to all serious students of the Bible, and will make reading the Psalms more enjoyable and more comprehensively informed.
