The Message of the Psalms: A Theological Commentary

By Walter Brueggemann | Go to book overview

Notes

Preface
1. Brevard S. Childs, “Some Reflections on the Search for a Biblical Theology,” Horizons in Biblical Theology 4 (1982): 1–12, has powerfully made the case that the believing community is an important and indispensable reference for doing biblical theology. He does not suggest this to the neglect or disregard of the academy, nor do I. On the use of the Psalms in a pastoral context, see the general statement of Stephen G. Meyer, “The Psalms and Personal Counseling,” Journal of Psychology and Theology 2 (1974):26–30, and the more helpful statement of Erich Vellmer, “Psalmen in einen Krankenhaus,” Textgemass, ed. A. H. J. Gunneweg and Otto Kaiser (Gottingen: Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, 1979), pp. 156–68.
2. Peter Berger and Thomas Luckmann, The Social Construction of Reality (Garden City, N.Y.: Doubleday and Co., 1966).
3. Among the more important sociological efforts in Old Testament study are Robert R. Wilson, Prophecy and Society in Ancient Israel (Philadelphia: Fortress Press, 1980), and Paul Hanson, The Dawn of Apocalyptic (Philadelphia: Fortress Press, 1975). Norman Gottwald, The Tribes of Yahweh (Maryknoll, N.Y.: Orbis Books, 1979), has provided a major stimulus for such an approach.
4. Rhetorical analysis in scripture study was given major impetus by the programmatic statement of James Muilenburg, “Form Criticism and Beyond,” JBL 88 (1969): 1–18. Among the more important works from this perspective are those of Phyllis Trible, God and the Rhetoric of Sexuality (Philadelphia: Fortress Press, 1978), and David M. Gunn, The Fate of King Saul (Sheffield: University of Sheffield, 1980) and The Story of King David (Sheffield: University of Sheffield, 1978). Mention should be made also of the work of Robert Polzin, Moses and the Deuteronomist (New York: Seabury Press, 1980), though his methodology is somewhat different. His introductory chapter is an especially important statement about the shift in methods.
5. On the royal psalms, see Keith R. Crim, The Royal Psalms (Richmond: John Knox
