Is anyone familiar with the Commentary on the Psalms by Theodoret of Cyrus?  I've really been keeping up with my psalter readings lately (Thanks be to God!) and would like to supplement them with some extra study using patristic commentary.  I would love to get the Grace from Grace volume edited by J. Manley, but it's out of print and pretty expensive to get a hold of nowadays. 

I would appreciate any thoughts on Theodoret's commentary and any other sources people have found useful in studying the psalms.

I have them, translated by Robert Hill of Catholic University of America press. He's what I would call a "hostile" translator, in that his intros don't really respect, IMHO, patristic commentary, often charging them with inaccuracy since they were not as enlightened by modern knowledge as he is, but the translations are good. Blessed Theodoret's commentaries on each psalm are substantial, so you should be able to learn a lot.
