In Theopoetry of the Psalms Cas J.A. Vos explores the beauty of the Psalms and examines their meaning within the context of exegesis, homiletics and poetry. By investigating the structure, literary genre, history and theology of the Psalms he traces the ways in which they continue to be relevant to contemporary readers and to modern worship. Vos scrutinizes the Psalms as a volume of poetry and a work of art; considers hermeneutical approaches and difficulties, providing not only a verse-by-verse analysis but also a contextual history; outlines a comprehensive homiletic theory for preaching the Psalms; and concludes with a study of the Psalms in liturgy. Theopoetry of the Psalms is valuable to those Biblical scholars who wish to explore the theological and exegetical interpretation of the Psalms as well as to those readers who are interested in liturgics and practical theology for preaching and worship.
"C. J. A. Vos has plumbed the depths of the biblical psalms to discover their metaphoric and theological power for preaching... No preacher or worship leader who reads this volume will ever approach the psalms the same again. We are indebted to Prof. Vos for guiding us on this fascinating journey. Thomas G. Long, Candler School of Theology, Emory University Atlanta, Georgia, USA... The Theopoetry of the Psalms by Cas Vos is a very impressive book containing great convincing scientific, theological, homiletical and liturgical thoughts. I am convinced that it will pave its way to international discourse around the topics of exegesis, homiletics and poetry. Prof. Dr. Albrecht Grozinger, Chair of Practical Theology, University of Basel, Switzerland The publication of Theopoetry of the Psalms by C. J. A. Vos is a great gift to theology, liturgics and homiletics. We have needed this book for a long time... This book is his magnum opus. May you have many hours of reading pleasure. Prof. H. J. C. Pieterse, University of Pretoria, South Africa This study makes an invaluable contribution to the field of homiletics and liturgy.
