How our favorite pop, rock, hip hop, and country songs echo the wisdom literature of the Bible.

Like the wisdom literature of the Bible, our favorite songs reflect the wide range of the human experience. These “pop psalms,” as we’re calling them, run the gamut from joy to sorrow, ecstasy to angst. And even if they’re not intentionally directed at God, as the biblical songs are, we believe that God hears each one.

In the free “Pop Psalms” ebook, expert Think Christian writers break down 12 hit songs in detail, exploring what we might learn about ourselves and God through them. You’ll encounter some artists you might expect—Kendrick Lamar, U2—as well as a few surprises. And of course, Lizzo is in a category all her own. Let’s press play together and see what we find.
