While there a few points here and there that weren't entirely convincing, on the whole Anderson presents excellent insight on Psalms and I am grateful for how his book has shaped my understanding of this portion of scripture.
This book gives a good foundation for Psalm studies. Anderson was able to draw practical lessons which is typically hard for scholars in psalm studies.
This book is an excellent resource for getting a grasp of the beauty and form of the psalms. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to increase their understanding of this significant piece of the Old Testament.

Best book I have ever read on the Psalms. It came quite highly recommended and I had not read it until now for various reasons, but I am so very glad I did. Very sweet book.
Wonderful beginners guide into exploring the depth of the Psalms.
