The class offers textual and historical-critical analysis on select prayers, hymns, Psalms and Canticles from the Old and New Testament. The aim of the course is to understand each prayer contextually with particular attention as to how the author’s use of prayer highlights reoccurring theological themes. The study will develop the student’s ability to integrate these prayers meaningfully into preaching, teaching, theological reflection, and prayer life.
