Catholic Press Association Book Award (Scripture)
Midwest Book Achievement Award of Merit

“Holladay’s wonderful book provides the reader with a clear and compelling account of how the history of biblical interpretation unfolds…. The book is enlivened by a rich use of anecdotes, which bring to life the history of the Psalter’s role in the church and synagogue…. Holladay’s book, while informed by tremendous learning, is written in a lively style that makes it accessible to lay readers.”

—Gary A. Anderson
Bible Review

“The most ambitious and comprehensive work on the Psalter published in recent years…. Holladay is judicious in his choice of material and presents his discussion in an engaging and interesting way…. This book will be a valuable resource for students of the Psalter.”

—Toronto Journal of Theology

“The subject of this book is vast and various. The time covered is three millennia. The topic is the origin of psalms and Psalter, their use in the life and liturgies of Judaism and Christianity, and the problems and possibilities in this contemporary appropriation. Such a project is intimidating to contemplate. It spans a cluster of fields that belong to specialists and involves material that is daunting in its complexity. Precisely because this is so, the book is needed…. It is necessarily selective and admittedly personal, but it does provide an overview and perspective that is not elsewhere available…. [Holladay’s] love and experience [of the Psalms] … have made the book and made it so useful.”

—James Luther Mays
Interpretation

“Mindful that public and private worship of Jews and Christians has been markedly shaped by the psalms of biblical Israel, Holladay considers their origins and functions across the centuries…. General readers and specialists will find this refreshing and well documented volume instructive.”

—J. Kenneth Kuntz
Religious Studies Review
