O. Palmer Robertson at the Banner of Truth Ministers Conference

I have just returned from the UK Banner of Truth ministers conference in Leicester. A highlight for me, apart from meeting people, was a talk by O. Palmer Robertson (apparently the "O" stands for Owen) which was on the structure of the book of Psalms. It was very helpful and it is the beginnings of a book that he hopes to be published by him at some stage.

He outlined the structure of the five books of the Psalms and why they are arranged in the way they are. He explained that there is a deliberate arrangement in all the five books in the psalter in the way flowers are arranged for a wedding. They are not just randomly arranged or selected. He expounded briefly Psalm 67 and what a rich Psalm this is.


1  May God be gracious to us and bless us
and make his face to shine upon us, Selah
2  that your way may be known on earth,
your saving power among all nations.
3  Let the peoples praise you, O God;
let all the peoples praise you!

4  Let the nations be glad and sing for joy,
for you judge the peoples with equity
and guide the nations upon earth. Selah
5  Let the peoples praise you, O God;
let all the peoples praise you!

6  The earth has yielded its increase;
God, our God, shall bless us.
7  God shall bless us;
let all the ends of the earth fear him!

Palmer Robertson has a number of other books such as " The Christ of the Covenants" and some other titles. He has a new book out also called something like Christ in the Prophets. He is an engaging speaker with passion and he has excellent content to his presentation as well.
