Renowned biblical scholar Roland E. Murphy has written The Gift of the Psalms to make their rich and deep messages accessible to everyone.In Part One, Murphy first discusses the various types of psalms, the major literary features of the psalms, and Christian interpretation of the psalms over the centuries. A second chapter examines important terms and theological concepts in the psalms such as God, creation, salvation, enemies, and suffering. A third chapter explores how the psalms can foster conversation with God for contemporary readers in the context either of public worship or private meditation.In Part Two, Murphy comments concisely on each psalm, illuminating key words and phrases and explaining allusions to events in Israelite history.The Gift of the Psalms is an ideal starting point for those who want to study the psalms--alone, in adult Bible study groups, or in prayer groups. It is for anyone who wishes to explore this important resource for contemporary believers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In its favor, the book is easily read and accessible to students of the Psalms in all walks of life. A love of the Psalms that seems to encourage others to take time with these texts comes through Murphy's writing. "The Gift of the Psalms" would be a useful addition to a church library and a good text to use in studying the Psalms in a congregational setting. For the pastor and students engaging in regular study of the Psalms and sermon preparation, this would be a good supplemental text. In general, Murphy's book is a good read for those who are making a beginning journey or a return trip to the world of the Psalms."
--"Lexington Theological Quarterly"
