King David kneels with his eyes raised toward a vision of the hand of God, while nearby rest his crown and psaltery, a stringed instrument, in a 15th-century manuscript by Italian artist Zanobi Strozzi introducing Psalm 1. The Psalms have been called the “balanced meal” of Divine Revelation, “the New Testament of the Old Testament,” and the most complete expression of just about every possible spiritual state in human life. So why don’t we pray with them more? On page 10, Mike Aquilina talks to the author of a new book on the Psalms, biblical scholar John Bergsma, who addresses some of the biggest misconceptions about the Psalms and makes the case for why they should play a central role in the life of every Christian.
