Customer Questions & Answers for
Fortress Press Message of Psalms

Scholarly and coherent, this important study of the Psalms focuses particular "postcritical" attention on their pastoral use---their function as voices of faith within the believing community---and provides valuable insights into the Psalter's sociological background. Brueggemann further reveals the shape and dynamic of the Psalms according to the theological framework of the crucifixion and resurrection while constantly aware of the Jewish context. Not every Psalm is treated but those that are present are placed into a narrative of rebirth: Orientation, Disorientation, New Orientation. This is the Message of Psalms, a promise of new life.

Walter Brueggemann is professor of Old Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary, Decatur, GA. He is the author of numerous books, including The Prophetic Imagination, Finally Comes the Poet, and Interpretation and Obedience.
