Praise and lament are two major approaches to praying to God. In this book, Claus Westermann investigates these primary categories of the Psalms and shows their meaning for prayer and worship. He contrasts the Old Testament Psalms with those of Babylon and Egypt indicating their distinctive characteristics. Sensitively written and carefully reasoned, Westermann's book will be valued for the clear-cut way it brings light to the character of the ancient Psalms of Israel.

Claus Westermann was Professor of Old Testament at the University of Heidelberg in Germany. He authored a number of books, including Praise and Lament in the Psalms, Roots of Wisdom, and Prophetic Oracles of Salvation in the Old Testament, all published by WJK.
