Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual SongsBy: Frederick S. Leahy
I have been accustomed to call the Book of Psalms ‘An Anatomy of all the parts of the Soul’; for there is not an emotion of which any one can be conscious that is not here represented as in a mirror. – John Calvin The Psalms are in a sense universal, and transcend the personal and historical. – Louis Berkhof The Psalms are an epitome of the whole Scriptures. – Athanasius Professor Leahy argues in this booklet that what God looks for in worship He has already given to us – namely the Book of Psalms.
