contains 45 meditations on the Psalms that Vos originally wrote for the
Standard Bearer. The title is O Taste & See: Meditations from
the Psalms. It is a reprint of the book that was first published as a
paperback in 1983. The reprint is graced with attractive hard covers. The
front cover displays the old Hudsonville Protestant Reformed church
building and the genial countenance of Gerrit Vos.
In addition to the devotional expositions of many of
the Psalms, the book contains a biographical sketch of Vos by his
daughter. How characteristic of him that he wrote out his will on the back
of a church bulletin and that the will began, "When I fall asleep in
To preach the Psalms well is not the strong gift of
every minister. Doing so requires the sanctified soul of a poet. It calls
for the man who feels deeply into all the spiritual moods of the Psalms
and who then can express these moods with lyrical voice. Such was the soul
of Gerrit Vos. Such a man was the long-time pastor of Hudsonville.
The devotionals that make up this book are instructive,
moving, and comforting. They are simple, so that every Christian can
understand. They are profound, uncovering the depths of God's revelation
of Himself to the soul of His child by the Spirit of Christ.
They are also God-glorifying. God had to have His glory
in all the preaching and writing of Gerrit Vos. I saw Rev. Vos' zeal for
the glory of God on an occasion that I have not forgotten. As a
seminarian, I had spoken a word of edification on a Sunday evening to the
congregation of Hudsonville. Rev. Vos was present. Afterwards, he sought
me out. He said nothing about the sermon, which, looking back, I recognize
as his unfailing kindness. But his face was aglow with delight that in the
congregational prayer I had praised "our adorable God."
