Walter Brueggemann is always stimulating. I am using this in a group Bible study on the psalms and it has generated a lot of thought and conversation. The video component was good. Steve Frost's commentary was good but not as significant as the narrative by Brueggemann. I would definitely recommend this for personal reading or group study.
