"This volume represents the splendid culmination of Walter Brueggemann's faithful, fruitful, career-long engagement with the Psalms--nearly one hundred books, articles, and book reviews over a period of almost fifty years! This crowning achievement will certainly be of major interest and usefulness to other scholars and teachers of the Bible. But my fervent hope is that it will also be widely used by pastors, musicians, and church educators so that Brueggemann's expressed 'long-term hope' for this volume will be realized--that is, 'that it may lead common church practice to greatly expand the repertoire of Psalms that are utilized in worship' (p. xi)." --J. Clinton McCann Jr., Evangelical Professor of Biblical Interpretation, Eden Theological Seminary "While clearly a comprehensive introduction to the Psalms, Brueggemann's presentation is carried less by technical information about types, settings, and other such matters and more by beautiful expositions of individual psalms. The result is an entry into the Psalter that is available to all levels of students and others interested in understanding the Psalms and their significance for Christian faith." -Patrick D. Miller, Professor Emeritus of Old Testament, Princeton Theological Seminary "Walter Brueggemann is the master interpreter of the Psalms, always in conversation with a wide range of scholarly issues and always with an eye to the context of contemporary readers. From Whom No Secrets Are Hid gives attention to difficult and often-unfamiliar texts in the Psalter as a means of revealing the self to the God who embraces pain and makes possible genuine newness. The articulation of the world envisioned in the Psalms and its challenge to our world in chapter 2 of the book are alone worth the price of the book! This volume will be lively and provocative for serious readers of the Psalms who seek growth in faith and for those who proclaim and minister in the powerful tradition of the Psalter." --W. H. Bellinger Jr., Chair, Department of Religion and W. Marshall and Lulie Craig Chairholder in Bible, Baylor University
