Sandra Richter brings our ancestors in the faith to the table where we learn from them in a cross-cultural experience bridging historical and modern day life. This eight-session study of the Book of Psalms (DVD/digital video downloads sold separately) masterfully mixes scholarly and practical teaching through the most-known wisdom Book of the Bible.
The key messages of this study include: what the Book of Psalms is (the hymnbook of ancient Israel), how it was utilized in Israelite worship (the various "forms" of the Psalms), and why the Book of Psalms remains critical to our devotional lives today. Sandra also dives into the concrete realities of Israelite worship (the tabernacle, temple, priesthood, and sacrifice) as well as Israel's theology of worship wrapped up in their theocratic world view.
Experience the Psalms with fresh connections to contemporary worship and devotional practices. Indulge in the biblical study of the Psalms from a scholar and former pastor. Letting Sandra do the "heavy lifting" of research and translation allows you to experience the Bible in a deeply sensitive way, answering the evergreen question, "so what does this have to do with me today?"
Designed for use with the Book of Psalms Video Study (sold separately).
