John Eaton lectured in Old Testament at the University of Birmingham until his retirement. He is the author of many notable books on the Psalms and the Old Testament.


"'Eaton's mastery of Psalms scholarship is apparent on every page but the material is presented in an attractive and readable manner, accessible to the general reader.... Eaton is to be commended for distilling a lifetime's work into the production of a commentary which should help increase appreciation of the riches of the Psalter among a wide audience.' John Day, The Exposltory Times"
