'Brueggemann and Bellinger provide a powerfully versatile presentation of the Psalms for students and scholars alike. Their commentary deftly covers the classical issues of scholarship and at the same time 'bridges the horizons' of the ancient text and the contemporary reader. Levinas and Calvin, Moltmann and Martin Luther King, Niebuhr and Niebuhr, and so many more are brought into conversation with the ancient words of lament and praise. The result is feasting on the psalmic word.' William P. Brown, Columbia Theological Seminary
'This superb commentary is exactly what one would expect from two of the leading Psalms scholars in the world - excellence! Drawing on the full range of traditional and more recent methods and perspectives, Brueggemann and Bellinger's comments are always theologically insightful, and they consistently engage contemporary issues such as globalization, consumerism, human rights, and religious chauvinism.' J. Clinton McCann, Jr, Eden Theological Seminary
'... displays both breadth and depth of scholarship and reflection on the Psalter with equal clarity in layout and thought ... If this were the first, or indeed only, Psalms commentary that were owned and referenced by anyone with an interest in the Psalms, it would be a well-chosen acquisition indeed.' Megan I. J. Daffern, The Journal of Theological Studies
'Preachers and teachers will especially appreciate this commentary on the Psalms. The authors' excellent exegetical work and attention to methodology will help readers to better understand the genre and context of each psalm.' Philip K. Gladden, Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology
