If there’s any book of the Bible where it feels as if the writer took a peek into your world and wrote about your life – it’s The Psalms.

King David lays the complexities of his life on the line – the joy, the pain, the deliverance from internal and external evil – all in total transparency, honesty, and realness. As a new believer/teammate, Psalms is one of the best, if not the best book of the Bible to begin a relationship with God, and build a prayer life.

What if “church music” artists, from gospel to contemporary christian music to traditional, took a page from David and got real about life and God in their music?

U2 lead singer, Bono, asks this question in this short documentary by Fuller Studio, where Bono and The Message Bible writer, Eugene Peterson, share their love and affinity for the book of Psalms with the release of Peterson’s The Psalms (from The Message).

Take a listen, and share your thoughts on Psalms and the need for our music to “tell the truth” and be more honest.

Does “church music” miss the mark on transparency and realness?
