The Psalms

the psalms

There was a time, many centuries long, when the Psalms were both influential and beloved.  They seem to have fallen into disfavor during my lifetime.  Why?

The Book of Psalms is quoted more often than any other Old Testament book in the New Testament.  Psalms is also quoted most often by Jesus Christ.  Yet I rarely hear sermons on the Psalms and even devoted students of the Bible seem to avoid deep engagement.

Is there something about the Psalms that disturbs contemporary Christians?  I think so.  Therefore we must look into this Book.  For it is often by disturbing our souls that God presses us forward into profound discoveries about our new life in Christ.
