Any good resources on how the Psalms were used in Jewish worship? I am not looking for an EP argument or counter argument. I am more interested in how they were practically done. For example, the notes of a study Bible noted that certain psalms were used in a liturgical fashion with the Jewish priest saying some parts and the congregation saying others.

I've been eyeing this book at our local bookstore:
Psalms In Congregational Celebration by O. Palmer Robertson

Publisher's Description:
The author argues that originally the Psalms were intended to be used with interactive congregational responses and he has translated them in this way. The selection chosen reflects the variety of messages and structures found in the Psalms themselves.

Has anyone else read this? Is it worth it?

Thanks, guys.

Chris: How do you know all the good books? Seems like you mentioned the new book on the Heidelberg Catechism on another thread. BTW, I submitted an interlibrary loan request for the Palmer book last week.
