The Hebrew Scriptures relate many instances of the people of God breaking into song when they experience the presence of God in their lives. Where is that song of praise in the Christian's life today? The responsorial psalm of the Sunday liturgy both summarizes the Word of God for the day and invites the community to join, mind and spirit, in affirming their part in that Word.

Psalm 98 is the 98th psalm of the Book of Psalms, generally known in English by its first verse, in the King James Version, "O sing unto the Lord a new song; for he hath done marvellous things". The Book of Psalms is the third section of the Hebrew Bible, and a book of the Christian Old Testament. In the Greek Septuagint version of the bible, and in its Latin translation in the Vulgate, this psalm is Psalm 97 in a slightly different numbering system. In Latin, it is known as "Cantate Domino"

This is one of two worship resources I turn to regularly in planning worship (the other is "Forbid Them Not," by Carolyn C. Brown). Organized around the Psalms recommended for each week's worship, Irene Nowell's "Sing a New Song" also includes tantalizingly rich reflections on the rest of the readings given for any given week as well.

Thus, for example, one finds for one of the (four) weeks in which Psalm 85 is used in the church calendar, both a note that the psalm "promises a restoration of the covenant relationship between God and the people" in which "God's justice guarantees the right relationship between all parts of creation" (p.51), and the observation that the gospel reading for one of those weeks, Matthew 14:22-33, moves Jesus' disciples "from non-recognition to a confession of faith" as Peter, stepping out on the water at Jesus' command, "recognizes not only Jesus, but the power of God working within himself" (p. 54). If that doesn't get your sermon started, I don't know what will!

My only caveat: Given that the psalms in this book are not arranged sequentially, nor according to the church year, but rather according to the author's classification of their type (historical, lament, thanksgiving, etc), the lack of a scripture index requires one to search the contents for a particular psalm. Apart from this lack, which is more an impediment in searching out the non-psalmic Biblical references not listed in the contents, I recommend this volume for anyone working, reading or praying the psalms in concert with the rest of scripture.

Good service and not a bad price either. Well satisfied with price as well as quality of merchandise. They produced what they promised.
