Exposing The Psalms
Full Product Description
"You have to experience the Psalms to understand them. They're art, not essays. You understand art when it surrounds and barrages your senses, like it would at a gallery, a museum, or surrounded by paint and canvasses in an artist's studio. This book is a gallery where you can play with the art." - Peter Nevland.
The book begins with an introduction in which the author encourages us to mind the gap between the ancient faraway culture of the psalmists and our current world. He outlines his way of interpreting the psalms (a nine-step interpretive process) before proceeding to unpack 30 of the 150 psalms. The book has an unusual design - more like a montage of comments than a commentary in the traditional sense.
It doesn't expound or 'expose' the selected psalms in the order in which they come in the canon of Scripture. It begins with Psalm 45, goes to 85, then to 23, then to 100,24, and so on.
Each commentary on the psalm is followed by a poem written by the author - a kind of lyrical exploration of some of the ideas in the psalm, which is, of course, itself a lyrical medium.
As a writer, teacher, performer and speaker, Peter Nevland's words excite, captivate, ignite and inspire. He's toured 5 continents, producing 7 CDs, 2 DVDs, 2 books and more than 700 poems since he left his engineering job at Motorola in 2002 to pioneer the art of Spoken Groove. When he's not preaching in churches, performing in theatres, teaching his How to Write workshops or writing ads to grow small businesses, you'll find him and his wife, Victoria, at their home in Austin, Texas.
"Excellent - a great balance of popular accessibility and theological explanation." - Graham Kendrick
