    Ive spent the past six months either reading in or teaching from the psalms, but Vic Black has introduced an approach to the psalms that is not only new but also energizing, providing a richer, deeper taste of Gods presence in His Words. Vics book, Speak, Lord begs the question: Why havent I thought of this before?

    Vic Black, National Prayer Director for the Navigators, invites his readers to hear the psalms in the first person, with God as the speaker and the believer as a much-beloved listener. In the foreword, Eugene Peterson ties this concept to Gods dealings with Moses in the Old Testament. The name that God spoke from the burning bush revealed God as both present and personal: YHWH I AM THAT I AM. Jesus spoke with this same personal, first-person voice, self-identifying as I AM seven times in Johns Gospel.

    Therefore, listening for Gods voice in the psalms, hearing His Words in first person, is more than just re-writing Scripture. It is an affirmation of the intimate relationship to be enjoyed between God and His child. Personalizing the psalms is a meditative exercise which is, at the same time, a roll-up-your-sleeves, haul- out-multiple-Bible-translations, and-dig-for-truth project.

    Vic recommends a journaling approach, pondering the question, Lord, what might it sound like if You spoke this psalm to me personally? This involves trusting the Holy Spirit to bring other Scriptures to mind that will shed light on the current psalm. By focusing on one psalm for an entire week, I was able to wait, to listen, and to soak in that one psalms truth.

    Speak, Lord examines over twenty psalms, providing the full text to begin the process, then analyzing the chapter for the theme and most important thoughts. Vic Blacks first-person expression of each psalm follows and then a reflection which captures additional insights that occurred to Vic in his study and meditation. Each chapter leaves the door wide open for reader input with prompts and tips for journaling the psalm in first person.

    Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom . . ., said Paul, meaning the inspired Scriptures, the word of revelation Christ brought into the world. Speak, Lord is an invitation to this abundant, extravagant saturation, a guide to slowing down and allowing God to speak for Himself through his Word.
