Harry Lee Poe - Breakout Session

When C. S. Lewis undertook his study of the Psalms, he said that it "is not what is called an 'apologetic' work," by which he meant a book "trying to convince unbelievers that Christianity is true." In another sense, however, apologetics is precisely what this devotional book for believers really is. In addition to believers, Lewis indicated that he wrote the book for "those who are ready, while reading, to 'suspend their disbelief." He does not deal with all the psalms, but he focuses on the ones that cause "difficulties" and that for modern readers "are at first most repellent." This session will explore how Lewis made the psalms accessible to a modern audience without changing their meaning.

Paul Jackson - Breakout Session

The Psalms are like a densely thicketed forest with five distinct yet connected sections. As a forest is only as beautiful as the sum of its trees, the Psalms overarching glory eludes us if we mainly study them individually. Sometimes interpretations and applications are missed because a key observation has been overlooked by focusing on just one "tree" - the key of observing how the author crafted the transitions between each large section. This session will explore how understanding the structure of the Psalms is essential for proper interpretation and application.

It is easy to forget that the Psalms are 150 separate poems. They are creative, emotional, lyrical poems designed in the mind of God. The poetry is easy to overlook because we read the Psalms in English translations. This breakout session will help us to rediscover the poetry of the Psalms. We will examine the use of descriptive imagery, helpful comparisons, and some uniquely Hebrew characteristics as well. Just as we read and interpret English poems differently from, say, essays or personal letters, we should also read and interpret the Psalms according to their style.

Heath Thomas - Breakout Session

A crucial question in reading Scripture is surprisingly simple: "What am I reading for?" This session will take us through some major reasons we read Scripture. We will see that people normally read the Bible to understand: ancient history, ancient literature, ancient culture, God's rules, God's promises, or simple facts. We will see that each of these, while important, fall short of what it means to read Scripture. We will explore a seventh way that helps us hear the voice of God in and through His Word.
