Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of this book that was conceived and planned in the closing stages of the nineteen nineties, with the objective of producing a new collection of studies on the Psalter in the early years of a century's turning. The twenty-seven chapters in the book are a representative sampling of the extensive investigation of the Psalter in contemporary biblical scholarship. In this collection, one may see various manifestations of this development in Psalms study. Some of the treatments focus particularly upon the process of selection and redaction, such as Harry Nasuti's investigation of the interpretive significance of sequence and selection of the Psalms. The headings or superscriptions of the Psalms, which have in the past been dismissed as later, and therefore unimportant, additions to the text, are the subject of close attention in a number of the chapters in the book.
