Product Description

Review

"'Eaton's mastery of Psalms scholarship is apparent on every page but the material is presented in an attractive and readable manner, accessible to the general reader.... Eaton is to be commended for distilling a lifetime's work into the production of a commentary which should help increase appreciation of the riches of the Psalter among a wide audience.' John Day, The Exposltory Times"

17 of 17 people found the following review helpful By George Cumberland on 15 Dec 2004
Format: Paperback
Anyone wishing to better understand the Psalms will welcome this book. Following an extensive Introduction, where Eaton provides background material about the Psalms in general, he then treats each psalm to his own translation, gives a brief introduction, a detailed commentary and then concluding remarks with a closing prayer. In dealing with individual Psalms Eaton never loses sight of the context of the Psalm within the complete Psalter. The book manages to combine the place of the Psalms in history and their place in, and meaning for, today's world in a vivid and extremely interesting way. It is a book which is very easy for the general reader to follow while at the same time providing for the more advanced student.

Eaton's excellent book has a section covering the background to the Psalms. The main part of the book has a section for each psalm, which is printed in full followed by an explanation. A learned book which has helped me in my studies - and if you are only buying one book on the Psalms, this should probably be it. It is printed on quality paper, with reasonable size print, beautifully laid out.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is worth buying just for the introduction alone. That certainly made me see the Psalms in a new light. However there is more. The commentary on each Psalm is reasonably short, typically a couple of pages. It is an ideal 'companion' for daily-reading, for example.

I think Vassar's conclusion to his review (RBL 02/2007): "This is a clearly written work and offers much assistance for the reader as a concise, straightforward commentary on the text" is spot on.

[For a more detailed review I recommend reading Vasser's whole review: [...]]
