KIRKUS REVIEW

The are probably the best loved and the best known part of the Bible. The historical background, presenting the evidence of the diversity of authorship, the brand span of time, may disturb the fundamentalists, but for most readers this section will help put the psalms into proper perspective. One section, briefly reviewing the history of the Jewish people is of inestimable value, and another analyzing the psalms themselves, grouped for specific categories, is deeply and reverentlyy approached. A Must Book, marketable for young adult as well as adult audiences.
