Psalm studies & canon

Two excellent books partly read on the train today: Michael Goulder on the Psalms of the sons Korah JSOT 1982, and Yitzhak Avishur, Studies in Hebrew and Ugaritic Psalms, Hebrew University Press 1994. I noted this book on my other blog under the Future of Canon because it relates to the intensifying ongoing discussion on canon.

There is also a brief post on necessary and sufficient conditions. Arguments have to have some rationale. Maybe this can help - with 1500 years of development, one can't be too quick on the decision. I am away from computers for a day - maybe this will help the thought process - one thousand years as a day. Hmmm, perhaps a day and a half would be better.
