'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.'
