I would recommend this book for anyone who is serious about learning about who wrote the book of Psalms and why but more especially learn about the different type of Psalms that were written for our Hassell Bullock. According to author Hassell Bullock, "No collection of poems has ever exercised as much influence on the Western world as the Book of Psalms. Though the Psalms are perhaps the most familiar portion of the Hebrew Bible, they are also among the most difficult to interpret. As a result, Bullock has created this guide to introduce students to the study and interpretation of the Psalms. Encountering the Book of Psalms begins by examining literary and hermeneutical dimensions. Bullock discusses the nature, structure, and authorship of the Psalter and provides readers with specific principles for interpretation.
