PSALMS IN COMMUNITY: JEWISH & CHRISTIAN TEXTUAL LITURGICAL & ARTISTIC TRADITIONS
$50.00
The Psalms, initially shaped by the experiences of ancient Israel, have for two thousand years expressed the hopes and fears, yearnings and devotion, of communities of conviction. The twenty-five essays in this volume provide a much-needed diachronic perspective and, representing disciplines such as biblical studies, liturgical studies, musicology, art history, theology, and literature, move beyond the initial cultural context of the Psalms to explore their appropriation and contribution to the lives of Jews and Christians across the centuries.
