4.0 out of 5 stars A book that will enliven prayer and make it real., 28 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Message of the Psalms (Augsberg Old Testament Studies): A Theological Commentary (Augsburg Old Testament Studies) (Paperback)
I really enjoyed and found Breuggemanns book on the Psalms, stimulating, enlightening and food for e spirit.
I loved the concept that Psalms bring to speech what is within and bring it to God who hears and answers. The structure of different Psalms Orientation, Disorientation and New orientation is very helpful

5.0 out of 5 stars Brings the Psalms to life!, 27 Mar. 2000
This review is from: Message of the Psalms (Augsberg Old Testament Studies): A Theological Commentary (Augsburg Old Testament Studies) (Paperback)
I have always found a study of the Psalms extremely difficult, but this book really brings a full, open meaning to them. It opens - up the Psalms from those so often 'chanted' according to the Psalter and which become dirges. Brueggemann really explains them and had allowed me to use them in my personal offices.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good advice on how to use the Psalms to minister to others., 18 Sept. 2013

This review is from: Message of the Psalms (Augsberg Old Testament Studies): A Theological Commentary (Augsburg Old Testament Studies) (Paperback)
A tough read but well worth persevering with. Saw how the Psalms when not used properly can inflect pain rather than help, which is helpful in pastoral care.
