Psalms are poems, prayers, and songs. This course involves close reading of texts along with study of modern resources. We will focus on paradigms of types of prayer that arise out of human experience and religious faith. The approach is literary, historical, and theological. Our goal is to respond to the beauty and spirituality of the Psalms in their original context, and also to appreciate their continued vitality in Christian thought, liturgy, and music.
