Rating scale: 5=Loved it, 4=Liked it, 3=Ok, 2=Disappointed, 1=Hated it. I look for well developed characters, compelling stories.
As familiar as so many of the Psalms are, this study enhanced both their beauty and meaning by telling the backstories of who wrote each, and in many cases (especially those by David) the historical context that inspired them. Dr. Creasy also broke down the poetic structure of some of the more elegantly written ones, revealing a new perspective what it took to create these spiritual works of art. Old favorites shine brighter, lesser knowns have been elevated. Great study.
It is true
David, because he is so human
Bill, because his teaching is wonderful
Psalms, it has some thing for everyone.
This is another great lecture series from Dr. Bill Creasy. He is always incredibly insightful and engaging. He often supplements the material with personal stories which are relevant and interesting. He has taken several trips to Israel and the Middle East where he visits the locations depicted in the Bible and he shares those first hand accounts which enables him to take you back to that point in time that the scripture is talking about.
"A very helpful and insightful guide through the psalms"
It brings the psalms to life, like having an enthusiastic tour guide taking you through a museum you've walked though before and only seen a clutter of old stuff. Now you can see the beauty of the crafted objects, feel the emotions and stories behind them and want to keep revisiting to study every part.
