Respected Old Testament scholar C. Hassell Bullock offers an accessible guide to the book of Psalms. This second edition is updated throughout and features a new design.
"Hassell Bullock presents the fruit of a lifetime of academic study and spiritual practice devoted to the Psalms. The first edition brought understanding and appreciation, and the second edition will do this and more. Hassell brings these poems of old off the page and into the hearts and lives of readers. The Psalms sing again."
--Richard S. Hess, Denver Seminary
"Readers can hear and feel the psalmists' heartbeat for God as they read Hassell Bullock's book on the Psalms. This revised edition is thoroughly updated and contains many useful and reader-friendly features, including sidebars, photos, figures, charts, and more. An especially welcome feature is the new attention to the canonical reading of the Psalter, i.e., to the book's structure and message as an organic whole. If one reads through this book--along with the book of Psalms itself!--one's spiritual life and love for God and neighbor will be immeasurably enriched. I heartily recommend it."
--David M. Howard Jr., Bethel Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota
"Hassell Bullock has done it again! In this revision of his time-honored Encountering the Book of Psalms, he combines the mind of a scholar, the clarity of a teacher, the heart of a pastor, and the deep piety of one who has long walked with God as he guides the reader to learn, to live, and to love the Psalter."
--Daniel J. Estes, Cedarville University
"Bullock's first edition has proven itself to be the most comprehensive introduction to the Psalter for students, pastors, and serious lay readers. What was already an outstanding treatment is now further enriched by years of mature reflection in preparation for his two-volume commentary on the Psalms. This updated edition of Bullock's balanced and student-centered volume is most welcome."
--John W. Hilber, Grand Rapids Theological Seminary
