IN A NUTSHELL: Psalms are songs written by people that the Holy Spirit seemed committed to preserve their perspectives for us.   Amidst their own life circumstances they processed the emotions and challenged their faith. Today many people experience their own life circumstances and are able to identify with the Psalm writers.  It's like hearing an old favorite song and saying "they wrote you a song".
