We Review Straight to the Heart of Psalms

Posted by Les Ellison  ·  Be the first to comment

In ‘Straight to the Heart of Psalms’, Phil Moore connects the voice of prophecy inherent in each psalm to Jesus and the gospel message for our own times.

Moore takes the view that the books of Psalms has something to teach us about how to relate to God rather that simply giving us the words to do so. And he doesn’t limit himself to dealing with each whole psalm individually, sometime he uses one of his 60 short chapters to explore just a few verses, and sometimes he runs psalms into each other so their verses overlap to shed light on a particular idea or theme.

Employing the wisdom of Christian thinkers past and present, he follows the biblical pattern of splitting Psalms  into five sub-books: the psalms that teach us how to sing about who God is (1 to 41), the psalms that teaches how to sing when times are hard (42 to 72), psalms that teach how God would have us feel, (73 to 89), how to sing about God’s plan for humankind (90 to 106) and how to sing your responses to God (107 to 150). Putting this clearly Jewish book in the context of its own times, the author connects the voice of prophecy inherent in each psalm to Jesus and the gospel message for our own times. And a stroke of brilliance - the title and page number of each section is printed vertically down the page edge so you can easily flip through the book and straight to the heart of the psalm you want with ease. Simples!
