The author 'gives us the help we need to overcome the distance between the psalmists' world and ours. He explains the various kinds of psalms, the way they were used in Hebrew worship and their relationship to the rest of the Old Testament. The he looks at how Christians can appropriate their message and insights today. Turning to the art of Old Testament poetry, he explains the use of parallelism and imagery... suggestions for interpreting the psalms on our own are followed by exercises for further study and reflection. Also included is a helpful guide to commentaries on the Psalms.

I'm finding Longman's books increasingly helpful and this is no exception. Helpful for preaching Psalms and for understanding them, he highlights the different styles of hebrew poetry and the different types of psalms. This isn't an academic book, nor is it meant to be, it's a helpful book well worth getting.
