Biblical Spirituality BIB509

Instructor: Biblical Spirituality BIB509

In this course, we will work to understand theoretically and practice personally the formational aspects of biblical study. How can the Bible become a lifelong and life-giving spiritual resource for individuals and congregations? Confessional or contemplative reading of the Bible is reading the Bible as if our life depends on it, as of course it does. Accompanied by artful response and worship, it leads us toward maturity, wisdom, and compassion. Not incidentally, through this way of reading, the biblical text itself vibrates with new meaning for new situations and new problems, new conflicts, new migration, and new developments of the earth in travail. (MDiv 1, 3; MACF 1, 2)
