How important are songs in the life of Israel and the church? In this course, learners study the Book of Psalms, giving attention to the various forms of the Psalms and their function within the historical experience of Israel. The course begins by focusing on the formulation and interpretation of the Psalms. Students then examine in detail the various types of psalms: lament, royal, pilgrimage, wisdom, messianic, and Psalms of descriptive praise. Dr. Waltke gives sermonic treatment of selected psalms with application for today’s church.
