The sermon series title in the Book of Psalms comes from John Calvin's view of this wonderful book of Scripture:
"I have been accustomed to call this book, I think not inappropriately, An Anatomy of the Soul; for there is not an emotion of which anyone can be conscious that is not here represented as in a mirror. Or rather, the Holy Spirit has here drawn to the life all the griefs, sorrows, fears, doubts, hopes, cares, perplexities, in short, all the distracting emotions with which the minds of men are wont to be agitated."
Martin Luther refers to the Psalms as "a little Bible":
"The Psalter ought to be a precious and beloved book, if for no other reason than this: it promises Christ death and resurrection so clearly—and pictures his kingdom and the condition and nature of all Christendom—that it might well be called a little Bible. And it is comprehended most beautifully and briefly everything that is in the entire Bible."
As we make our way through this poetic book of wisdom, may God grow our knowledge of who he is even more, and like a mirror, reflect in us the wonderful truths and promises that speak to every emotion we feel.
