Third volume out soon

Of this major new commentary on the Psalms. It is an important commentary. However, like all commentaries, this one should be read with discernment, as the author is an open theist. He is constantly preaching about God’s plan B, and how humans force God to change His plan. Nevertheless, Goldingay has a keen insight into literary structure, and I have gleaned many insights from his work.

    An open theist??? Sigh…perhaps, Lane, you should post about how commentators are contributing to the fragmentation of theology.

    How about a whole Ph.D thesis? ;-)

    When I read his “Models for Scripture” I knew something doesn’t sound right, and I see he’s teaching at Fuller Theological Seminary. But I still gave him the benefits of the doubt thinking I probably over-read him. But thanks Lane for confirming my thoughts.

    Plan B, eh? Reminds me of classical dispensationalism, which claimed that Israel’s rejection of Jesus as its Messiah, which (supposedly) caught God by surprise. He then had to go to a Plan B.

    I wonder if Plan B is related to “Plan 9 from Outer Space,” one of the worser of Ed Wood’s really bad movies…
