How important are songs in the life of Israel and the church? This course explores the book of Psalms and their function within the historical experience of Israel. The 150 poems in this ancient anthology represent a range of human voices that include songs of lament, pilgrimage, wisdom, praise and thanksgiving. They speak of G-d’s work and G-d’s relationship with humankind. Its sentiments and passions are our own.
