When a Psalm Opens up to a Reader, for Example Psalm 126: Psalm Therapy

leave a comment »

Opening a Psalm and Exploring Psalm Therapy-pages 1-8-signed

For the rest of the paper goto Scholardarity/Articles and Books/Theology/Religious Studies, and click on Psalms.

N.B.: When I work out the therapeutic value of the Psalms, I am not trying to reduce theology to psychology, but pointing out the psychological dimension of those rich prayers of lamentation and praise. When I gave the lecture for the Reformation Day Celebration at Gettysburg Seminary a few years ago, one minister said I was reducing theology to psychology. To work out theological therapy was my attempt to explore the rich psychological and therapeutic dimension of Luther’s theology, not to reduce it to psychology. For the latter lecture see: Luther’s In Depth Theology and Theological Therapy.
