William L. Holladay offers an illuminating and informative overview of the Psalms--chanted, sung, and recited by so great a cloud of witnesses (Hebrews 12:1) through the past three thousand years. He combines treatment of the origins of the Psalms with attention to their Jewish and Christian use through history. --from publisher description
