“It is a curious fact that the church has, by and large, continued to sing songs of orientation in a world increasingly experienced as disoriented.” – Spirituality of the Psalms, 25
What does he mean? Can you give me some examples?
A Psalm of orientation is one that look at the bright side of life. An excellent introduction to the psalms is Mark Futato’s Transformed by Praise.
Haven’t heard of that one. Thanks for the heads up.
Futato has also written Interpreting the Psalms: An Exegetical Handbook which is good, it covers the same material as the one mentioned above but is more textbookish. His commentary on the Psalms should be coming out this year sometime.
