This book is by Alec Motyer and is the last of the series. The first Tyndale Old Testament Commentary (TOTC) was Kidner on Proverbs. In that volume, Donald Wiseman's first general preface said the aim was for 'students and serious readers'. In the TOTC Psalms, the aim was a bit more specific, 'to provide the student of the Bible who has no specialised training in biblical theology or history of languages with a handy up-to-date commentary on each book'. In this final TOTC, we are back to the serious Bible reader.
