I am taken with your assessment. Reading Dairmaid MacCulloch makes it clear that our generation is not alone in its disabilities. I think the Psalter is the book that draws us into the reality of doing reconciliation and 'binding kings in chains' - the kings object in psalm 2 to God's monopoly on being in charge but must learn to be 'likest God' in their learning of mercy.

The psalms are where Jesus learned, I think.

Hello Bob - I agree that the Psalms have much to say on reconciliation, as it has about enemies, vengeance and the longing for peace. And yes, Jesus learned from the Psalms - but also his manifesto came from isaiah who I think is also deeply pervasive in the words and ideas of Jesus. Good to hear from you again - hope your work goes well.
