"As the church’s hymnbook often serves as the theology text for the average layperson, it is instructive how much robust theology we find in the hymnbook of the ancient Israelites."
"Why, then, are the psalms absent in many modern churches? Repetitive praise choruses are substituted for the reading or singing of the psalms. When psalms are used, only short selections are read. Difficult verses and entire psalms are ignored."
