Harvard Divinity School Center For The Study Of World Religions Lectures

The Harvard Divinity School and their Center For The Study Of World Religions offer lecture mp3s here.

World religious studies is a deep interest of mine, especially as those studies relate to origins narratives, and the role of art and music in perpetuating faith narratives across generations.

You may not find the elements in lectures like these as intriguing as I might, yet, in a shrinking world, it becomes increasingly important for Christians to interact with the variety of stories and faith themes existing in the world.

We have much to learn from many peoples, and we have much to learn about communicating the biblical story in such a way that others can embrace it for the human Story that it is intended to be.

Sheltering Mercy and Endless Grace help us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation. Sheltering Mercy helps the reader pray Psalms 1-75; Endless Grace leads in prayer through Psalms 76-150.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. Each book contains 75 prayers drawn from the Book of Psalms, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning there. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

These artful, poetic, and classic devotional books are a perfect gift, and feature compelling stunning illustrations and hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms. Co-written with Ryan Whitaker Smith, Brazos Publishing.
