The Flow of the Psalms explores the fascinating structures of psalm groupings that will enable you to place as many as 80% of the psalms in their relationship to the whole of the book.  Discovering groupings that feature psalms celebrating creation, psalms of corporate praise, psalms of the innocent sufferer, psalms of the guilty sufferer, psalms anticipating prosperity and long life, psalms of personal and national disaster, will enable you to “find your way” to the right psalm for a specific occasion.  Understanding these inherent connections can only enrich the understanding of each individual psalm.

Throughout the whole, the promised Messiah and His universal reign provide a unifying focus.  Charts displaying the structure inherent in each of the five books of the Psalter make it possible to visualize the progression in redemptive truth from Psalm 1 to Psalm 150. – from a brochure describing Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary’s 2015 Summer Institute program, The Flow of the Psalms.
