An exhaustive study of these kingship psalms, utilizing the entire lexicon of the 8 psalms studied. Howard's study confirms that Hebrew poetry is regularized around a pattern of bicolons of roughly 8:8 syllables and 3:3 stresses. A major contribution to the rhetorical-critical method.
"Howard achieves his goal of analyzing the structure of Psalms 93-100 and contributing to Psalm research with a well-constructed and easy to use book. The appendices which include dating, prose particle counts and percentages, divine names and titles, and wisdom and royalist/Zion traditions in the Psalter are also helpful and lead one to speculate on future areas of study."--Mary Katharine Deeley, Seabury-Western Theological Seminary in Hebrew Studies
"Howard as provided an excellent study of Psalms 93-100 which is must reading for all who are interested in these psalms in particular and/or the question of the shape of the Psalter in general. Howard has succeeded in showing the value of the quest and in providing a methodological map for others to follow."--Mark D. Futato, Westminster Theological Seminary in Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
"He provides a solid work, clearly written, that illustrates generally the legitimacy of reading the Psalms as a book."--Jerome F. D. Creach, Barton College in The Catholic Biblical Quarterly
"This book demonstrates impressively how much understanding can be gained simply on the level of thorough structural examination of the text."--R. P. R. Murray in JSOT
"In general, one could have no better advocate for the theory of synchronic coherence in the Psalter."--Leslie C. Allen, Fuller Theological Seminary in Journal of Biblical Literature
