Who wrote the Psalms? What are their groups and genres? Can we find Jesus in the Psalter? How can we use these ancient songs today?
In the style of a catechism, this book draws you into the majestic, meditative depths of the inspired songs of God. Divided into seven short sections, 150 questions and answers address the content and arrangement of the Psalter, Psalm genres and groupings, the historical context of the author, the Psalms' relationship to the rest of Scripture and the life of Christ, and their use in private and public worship. Appendixes include worksheets and charts and quotations from theologians and church fathers.
