Editorial Reviews


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

"In this volume, Gillingham meticulously masters the diversereception history of the psalms.... Every page is bursting withsolid research and influential insight. This work is an invaluableaddition to the field and beckons the second volume." (ReligiousStudies Review, December 2009)

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

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


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

"As liturgical and devotional texts the Psalms occupy a uniqueplace in Jewish and Christian tradition. In this impressively wideranging study, Sue Gillingham explores how over the centuries thePsalms have inspired, been prayed, analysed, interpreted and spokenwith an extraordinary resonance to many kinds of human need.Musicians, liturgists and students of literature as well astheologians, clergy and Christian and Jewish teachers, will findfresh perspectives and new insights in this magisterial survey. Weawait with anticipation the second volume in which against thisbackground the interpretation of individual psalms will beconsidered." 
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.
