The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible encourages readers to explore how the vital roots of the ancient Christian tradition inform and shape faithfulness today. In this addition to the series, a well-known pastoral theologian offers a theological reading of Psalms 101-150.
The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible advances the assumption that the Nicene creedal tradition, in all its diversity, provides the proper basis for the interpretation of the Bible as Christian scripture. The series encourages readers to extend the vital roots of the ancient Christian tradition to our day.
Brazos enlists leading theologians to read and interpret Scripture for today, just as the church fathers, the Reformers, and other orthodox Christians did for their times and places. Each volume is designed to serve the church—providing a rich resource for preachers, teachers, students, and study groups—and demonstrate the continuing intellectual and practical viability of theological interpretation of Scripture.
This volume is available for purchase individually, or as part of the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible (27 Vols.) - BTC.
"The Brazos commentary series provides something valuable to contemporary students of the Bible and of theology by combining historical and critical approaches to the Bible with the theological tradition of the church...[Jason Byassee] offers a theological reading of [Psalms 101-150] that emphasizes their immense value for modern Christians...An excellent resource for beginning or advanced students of the Bible." - John R. Baker, OFM, The Bible Today
"Throughout my reading of the commentary [Psalms 101-150] I found myself agreeing with almost every theological conclusion that [Jason] Byassee reaches, although I would have reached them (and have reached them, in many cases) from a quite different methodological starting point...As Byassee affirms from the outset, he is always the preacher, and preachers will perhaps be his most appreciative audience. Preachers should appreciate that he discerns the following: 'The Bible unfolds in patterns. And its master pattern is one of mercy.' While this is thoroughly Augustinian and Wesleyan, it is also thoroughly psalmic. Preachers will also appreciate the frequent insights Byassee draws from his pastoral work, as well as his illustrative material." - J. Clinton McCann Jr., Review of Biblical Literature
