A Journey Through the Psalms is a workbook designed for both individual and group work. The psalms are different from the rest of scripture in that they are the inspired writings of mankind lifting prayers and praise to God. The psalms cover the gamut of human emotion, the deepest cries of the heart, and the study of them develops a broader understanding of praise, worship and prayer.
Each study leads the participant through a minor technical analysis to better grasp Hebrew poetry, as well as reflection and meditation sections to assist in experientially understanding worship as the psalmist intended. The workbook is full of extras such as a recommended study sequence, a group worship activity tailored for each psalm and group exercises useful for providing a change of pace or facilitator downtime. The study encourages the participant to explore their insights, hardships, and journey as a manner of ministering to one another. There are no right or wrong answers, only the mindfulness of where each is as they share their journey.
This workbook encourages personal reflection, followed by interaction with a group. This shared worship, in community, offers insight and richness which can only be obtained in this way. The Psalms have much to teach us in this day of individualism and the limited breath of the corporate worship experience. A Journey Through the Psalms helps us to gain that understanding.
