Greater than the sum of its parts

“In many ways, studying the theology of the Psalter parallels the study of the theology of the Old Testament. The psalms reflect diversity as independent literary units that originated and were used in a variety of historical contexts and yet that have been drawn together into a canonical unity to provide a theological perspective that transcends the sum of its parts.”—A Severe Mercy, page 396
