Teaching Psalms, Volume 1: From Text to Message (Teaching the Bible)

Digital Logos Edition

Logos Editions are fully connected to your library and Bible study tools.



The Psalms can be sung, spoken or read, but they were written to be prayed. Until we pray them from the heart we miss their purpose. If you love, or want to love, or think perhaps you ought to love, the Psalms, this first instalment of a two-volume set on the Psalter is for you. Christopher Ash gives us a practical and theological handbook to equip us to pray and to teach the Psalms. He faces the difficulties and shows how praying them in Christ does justice to their original meaning and context as well as their place in the whole bible.

“But how can sinners sing the song of Jesus the sinless one? How can we join in? The answer is because the righteousness of Christ is imputed to us.” (Page 105)

“Athanasius wrote that the Psalms ‘have a unique place in the Bible because most of the Scripture speaks to us, while the Psalms speak for us.’” (Page 23)

“These introductory Psalms establish two foundational themes right at the outset of the Psalter: God’s law and God’s king” (Page 40)

“The Psalms have a similar ability to take death-giving emotions and turn them into life-giving feelings” (Page 29)

“these formed a significant, and perhaps the main, part of their Spirit-inspired singing” (Page 21)
