Several years ago, we participated in a study with Luther Seminary on biblical fluency. One of the things we discovered is that people at Bethlehem identified Psalms as a favorite book of the Bible. That’s not a surprise. Martin Luther said the book of Psalms “might well be called a little Bible” because it integrates all of life. Not a book through which God speaks to us, but a collection of songs through which we speak to God, the Psalms give voice to some of the most honest, gut-wrenching and raw of human experiences.
