Scripture and Church Seminar

Theme: “The Psalms and the Life of the Church.” The Scripture and Church Seminar explores the nexus between Scripture and the Church in terrain typically denominated “practical theology.” Our papers this year will address:

  1. The Psalms and the Faith of the Church: How is the faith of the church formed by diverse interpretations of the Psalms in terms of her worship and liturgy.
  2. The Psalms and the Preaching of the Church: How should the Psalms be preached in a cultural and theological context so far removed from their original setting?
  3. The Psalms and Music of the Church: What are some ways in which the Psalms are inspiring church musicians to compose music?
