Summary:

This course is an interactive investigation of the Book of Psalms, with a special emphasis on how the psalms have been, and can be, used within the devotional life of a Christian.  The course will consider the psalms in their historical and canonical context.  It will also consider the role of the Psalms in lives of both King David and Jesus Christ, as well as selected Christians – both men and women – throughout the history of the church.  Particular attention will be given to the issue of how best (or if at all) in light of contemporary scholarship to apply the Psalms faithfully and intelligently to Jesus Christ.  It will run for eight weeks.
