The psalms gathered here according to literary type explore almost every conceivable emotion -- from the pathos of individual and community laments to the calm reflection of the wisdom psalms and the joyful exuberance of the psalms of thanksgiving. In the introduction, Boadt and Bruce look at the origins of the Psalms in ancient Israelite faith and worship, and explore some of the distinctive qualities and insights of Hebrew poetry for today.
