A&C Black, 1 nov 2003 - 536 pagine
No one is more qualified to write on the Psalms than John Eaton. He is a distinguished Old Testament scholar and has spent a lifetime studying the Psalms. This commentary is addressed to the wide readership. There is a long and highly readable introduction giving a background to the Psalms; then follow the 150 Psalms, each in EatonÆs translation. He explains the background to the Psalms and their content in a way which makes them interesting and relevant to the present. The discussion of each psalm ends with a related Christian prayer, either from the tradition or written by Eaton himself.

John Eaton is recognised as one of the worldÆs leading experts on Psalms: this commentary is the culmination of his lifeÆs work.
