Although I cannot speak as a scholar in this area, I have been reading the Psalms, often aloud, in many English translations for years. When I finished THE COMPLETE PSALMS, I began again the same morning with Psalm 1.
I look forward to learning more about Pamela Greenberg's thoughtful and creative work. This week, through Amazon.com, it was also my privilege to send gift copies to the libraries at Northern Illinois University and Northeastern Illinois University.

The Complete Psalms, Pamela Greenberg's new translation is a fresh look at these traditional prayers. She gives them fresh life as she takes them from The Book to make connections, her soft turns of phrase make them real for today's believer. See the end of Psalm 1: "the road of the wrongful is covered with weeds", or Psalm 83 "God... don't stiffen into silence." She shows a personal experience of the God who walks with us.
The text can be beneficially used for occasional prayer or sharing in a group.
I chose this rating because Greenberg's artistic translation expanded my delight in reading and praying with the Psalms! I especially loved her retention of the word SELAH, because it saild to me..."this is really important, go back and read it again!"
