Loving Psalms

2008 has been the year I fell in love with the Psalms. The last two Sunday mornings I've had the joy of teaching our young adult Sunday School class on the multi-faceted glory of the Psalms -- that which prompted Martin Luther to call the Psalter "a Little Bible." One of my aims was to show that the Psalms are about Christ (Jesus and the Apostles thought so, cf. Luke 24:44; Matt. 21:15-16; Acts 2:32-26; etc.) and full of gospel comfort. We finished up this morning by looking at the Psalms as poetry, prophecy, theology, a prayer book, and song book. I ended by pointing to this terrific article by Joe Holland on the renaissance of Psalm singing.
