A Rabbi Reads the Psalms
This item is a print on demand title and will be dispatched in 1-3 weeks.
After teaching the Psalms for over twenty years, Magonet has found very little on rabbinical interpretation, ancient, mediaeval or modern. This is an introduction to the Hebrew text that gives access to the richness and complexity of the language of the Psalms to the non-Hebrew reader. Jonathan Magonet is Principal of Leo Baeck College, London.
"The reader gets a generous sampling of Rabbinic interpretations and perspectives judiciously placed throughout each chapter. (...) Magonet has a definite ability to unwrap Hebrew terms (from ruach to vav) while not forgetting the wrapping itself (context). He does not overindulge the classifications of the Psalms. The subtleties and the complexities of the Psalms receive their due." Journal of Psychology and Christianity, Winter 2006, Vol.25, N°24.
