Editorial Reviews


“Dr Gillingham has already published widely on the Psalms, and we look forward to her second volume.”  (Journal of Theological Studies, 1 October 2013)

"In this volume, Gillingham meticulously masters the diverse reception history of the psalms.... Every page is bursting with solid research and influential insight. This work is an invaluable addition to the field and beckons the second volume." (Religious Studies Review, December 2009)

"This is a most impressive piece of work…. The Coverage is truly encyclopaedic in scope and nothing seems to have escaped Gillingham's attention." (Journal for the Study of the Old Testament, June 2008)

"This wonderful book whets the appetite both for its second volume, and for more volumes of this valuable series.... [A] highly innovative and promising project." (International Review of Biblical Studies, 2007-2008)


"This book is a breakthrough in our understanding of the reception history of the Psalter. It will appeal to scholars and students of the Psalms and also to everyone who uses and prays them. The scope is extraordinarily wide and covers both Jewish and Christian use of the Psalms over nearly three thousand years." 
Professor John Barton, Oxford University

"As liturgical and devotional texts the Psalms occupy a unique place in Jewish and Christian tradition. In this impressively wide ranging study, Sue Gillingham explores how over the centuries the Psalms have inspired, been prayed, analysed, interpreted and spoken with an extraordinary resonance to many kinds of human need. Musicians, liturgists and students of literature as well as theologians, clergy and Christian and Jewish teachers, will find fresh perspectives and new insights in this magisterial survey. We await with anticipation the second volume in which against this background the interpretation of individual psalms will be considered." 
The Rt Revd Dr Geoffrey Rowell, Diocese of Europe

I read this book with great interest. It covers an aspect of the Psalms that ought to be better known: their reception through the centuries by both Jews and Christians.
There is a second volume of commentary promised which will make the two volume set a must-have for serious Bible students. For now, especially for those who have not studied the history of the interpretation and use of the Bible before, this book can be an eye-opening read.

It took a long time for me to save up for this title. But Gillingham's Psalms through the Centuries is a required read for anyone serious about Psalms study.
