Psalm 29 through Time and Tradition
Handy, Lowell K., editor

Cambridge: James Clarke, 2011 pp. xii + 147. £18.25


Description: Psalm 29, a sacred text in Jewish and Christian Bibles, has been understood in a variety of ways through time and in different traditions. This volume presents a sample of the use and meaning derived from a single biblical text. From the earliest translations to contemporary African Independent Churches, this psalm has been an integral part of synagogue and church; but what it has meant and how it is used is a fascinating journey through human culture. Not only the understanding of the written word, but also the liturgical use and the musical adaptations of a biblical text are considered here.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Writings, Literature, Psalms
