Birmingham-Southern professor publishes book focused on the Psalms

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—A book written by Amy Cottrill, assistant professor of religion at Birmingham-Southern College, was recently published. The book, titled “Language, Power, and Identity in the Lament Psalms of the Individual,” explores the rhetorical identity of the “I” in the lament Psalms with a particular focus on how the psalmist negotiates moral agency and constructs identity within the cultural, theological and ideological assumptions embedded in the language of the laments.

The book was published in 2008 by T & T Clark International.
