Discover the beauty, depth and raw emotion behind the psalms
Right in the middle of the Bible, we find not a theological address or a great historical event, but passionate poetry. These wonderfully honest songs of life cover the full range of human emotions – including hope, joy, lament, despair and thanksgiving – while pointing to our faithful, good and eternal God.
These seven insightful sessions help us to discover:
- There are psalms of education, consolation, exasperation, anticipation, lamentation, contemplation and adoration.
- The psalms are earthy and realistic in addressing our frail and fallible human condition, but show us how to live a life of faith.
- We can be completely honest about our emotions before God, while knowing Him to forever be worthy of our praise.
Icebreakers, Bible readings, eye openers, discussion starters, personal application make this a rich resource for group or individual study.
