The Psalms and Trinitarian worship

May 12, 2008

In his excellent book The Holy Trinity, Robert Letham states that “the Psalms do not explicitly reflect the full range of Trinitarian revelation, and so cannot be the sole diet of the church without truncating its worship”. However, it was with welcome relief to read “The Psalms and Trinitarian Worship” recently, written by Rev. Dr. Iain D Campbell, who ably demonstrates why the exclusive use of the Psalms in public worship does not truncate, but enhances, true trinitarian worship.

    As I get deeper into the covenant dialogue that the Psalms represent, I cannot help feeling less attracted by some forms of ‘theology’ that while I may ‘believe in’ them, they are more cerebral than incarnate. I like Luther’s image of the Psalter as a little Bible – containing all the Gospel. Even if it is only that I see it in one word – tamim, completeness.
