Kingship in the Enthronement Psalms : A Historical Literary Analysis of the Kingship Metaphor and its Implications for Israel's Worship

The book aims to provide a closer reading particularly to the texts of the enthronement psalms (47, 93, 95-100) in relation to the theological concerns pertaining to the kingship metaphor of Yahweh in the book of Psalms. This aims to provide an authentic understanding of kingship metaphor in finding the implications for Israel's worship. It presents that the enthronement psalms indicate that the kingship metaphor is a key for evolving worship.

The book suggests the exalting God through music, postures and gestures can be integrated to our worship today. Hence, this scholarly work brings out how worship is embedded in the enthronement texts through the kingship metaphor. The fruit of such a `Historical-Literary' analysis connectedness to particularity and universality gives us a tool to motivate a congregation of believers to give due worship to Yahweh. Thus, it shows how kingship of Yahweh impacted Israel's worship and how it can continue to have an effect in the worship of Indian churches today.
