In A Story of the Psalms
, V. Steven Parrish relates the book of Psalms and pastoral ministry and sets together recent developments in reading Psalms and current studies of largely North American congregations. In relating Israel's story of emergence, establishment, collapse, and reemergence Parrish explains how in these multiple and often competing conversations we might also hear the Word of God to help todays congregations in their struggles for identity and purpose.
Chapters are "A Story of the Psalms," Emergence, Establishment, Collapse, and Reemergence.
