LogosPro_blog

C.S. Lewis once said, “The most valuable thing the Psalms do for me is to express the same delight in God which made David dance.”

Poetry has the unique power to evoke the vast and varied expanse of human emotion. And the Psalms have it all—from fiery, righteous indignation to wild, unbridled joy and profound bewilderment.

How do they do it? What is it about these ancient songs that still captures our hearts, and, like Lewis said, compels us to delight in God?

49453“For many within the biblical field, the publication of yet another commentary seems about the last thing needed,” says Brevard Childs in the preface to his commentary on Isaiah.
