About the Author

Alistair Hunter teaches at the University of Glasgow, UK.


'An Introduction to the Psalms is a refreshingly different addition to many introductions already available. Alastair Hunter brings to this study a wealth of experience in teaching and research, and has the gift of addressing traditional questions about the origin and use of the psalms in a perceptive and original way. Students thinking about the psalms for the first time will find here a useful map to help them discover un-chartered territory; and those who have journeyed through the psalms many times before will find many new vistas and unexpected places of interest.'
Susan Gillingham, Worcester College, Oxford University, UK
