Written by leading experts in the field as well as some younger scholars, The Book of Psalms: Composition and Reception offers a wide-ranging treatment of the main aspects of Psalms study. The almost 30 essays--by leading experts in the field as well as some younger scholars--consist of two overall sections. The first section contains studies of a more general nature; commentary on or interpretation of specific Psalms; social setting; and the Psalter as book. The second section contains essays on the literary context of the Psalter (including Qumran); textual history and reception in Judaism and Christianity; and the theology of the Psalter. The volume ends with a cumulative bibliography and several useful indices.ContentsIntroduction and overview of Psalms scholarship in this volume Konigspsalmen und ihr ritueller Hintergrund; Erwagungen zu Ps 89,20-38 und Ps 20 und ihren Vorstufen The Psalms of David: David in the Psalms 53Psalms and the literature of exile: Psalms 137, 44, 69, and 78 Non-acrostic alphabetic Psalms Mowinckel's enthronement festival: a review Zum sogennanten "Stimmungsumschwung" in Psalm 13 An intertextual reading of Psalms 22, 23, and 24 On Psalm 29: structure and meaning Double entendre in Psalm 59 Psalm 90: wisdom meditation or communal lament?
