Patrick D. Miller seeks to help interpreters of the Psalms 'find entrie into them in various ways to hear their theological claims and their point of contact with human life.' In Part One, Miller examines the dominant 'general approaches' that are currently shaping the study of psalms. He pays special attention to the poetic features of the psalms so as to aid the task of understanding their meaning. In Part Two, he offers extended expositions of ten specific Psalms -- 1, 2, 14, 22, 23, 82, 90, 127, 130, and 139. These Psalms are interpreted with an eye to theological and pastoral issues and with a sensitivity to their features and to their significance as Christian Scripture.
