Opening the Scriptures is neither a new series of technical commentaries, nor is it a collection of sermons. Instead it offers devout church members a series of popularly accessible primers so that the average churchgoer can easily grasp them. The organization of this series follows the four main sectional divisions of Holy Scripture: the Torah, the many prophetic books, the Psalms and wisdom books, and the New Testament. The authors of Opening the Scriptures show throughout that Holy Scripture is from A to Z the Book of God's covenant with his people. 1. Introduction to the Psalms or Writings 2. What the Location of the Book of Psalms Teaches about Its Content 3. The Righteous in the Psalms 4. The Wicked in the Psalms 5. Psalm 1: The First Key to the Book of Psalms 6.
