Psalms/Lamentations/Song of Songs
Several books in the Bible are actually collections of the words to songs: Psalms, Lamentations, and Song of Songs. This study guide will help individuals and groups understand these books by explaining the different kinds of songs that were written in ancient times and how many of them have become part of the Bible. It will help readers appreciate how these songs capture the deepest human emotions and most vivid experiences of people like us who walked with God long ago. The Understanding the Books of the Bible series helps readers understand the biblical story by not only talking about what the authors wrote, but also how they wrote. Quite often, recognizing whether a passage is poetry, proverb, or history and discerning how the author built his book will unlock its meaning for today's reader. Instead of following artificial chapter and verse divisions, these Bible study guides lead groups through whole books following their natural outlines, and pose engaging questions for discussion and personal application all along the way.
