Topics in the Psalms
For those of us who are committed to either inclusive or exclusive psalmody, at times we keenly feel the lack of a decent topical index of the psalms. When preaching on particular themes or topics it would be useful to have a fuller index than is provided in most psalters.
One little known but invaluable resource is “Topics in the Psalms” by Howard Osgood. Osgood was a much respected, but now almost forgotten Baptist pastor and Old Testament scholar. He served as professor of Hebrew in Crozer Theological Seminary, 1868-74; and in Rochester Theological Seminary, 1875-1900.
This little work was privately published for the use of his own students. It is an excellent resource that has immense practical use. As far as I know it was never widely distributed or ever republished.
The image PDF file available at the Internet Archive is searchable. The text file requires a little cleaning up as the OCR software is not perfect. If I ever get around to doing this I will make the doc file available.
