Dr. David Wray
Dr. David Wray teaches this course on the manner in which we interact with Scripture for transformation rather than simply information. He says that reading the Bible for, “Life with God,” as Foster describes it, is not about just gaining knowledge or information. It is allowing the Holy Spirit to enable us to understand that we are to love God with our heart, soul and mind. God gave us minds to understand the meaning of Scripture and our relation with him.
The six-week class offers lessons on the following topics:
- Reading with the Mind
- Lectio divina
- Reading the Psalms
- Reading Scripture in Community
- Reading with the Reformers
- Reading Scripture with the Church Fathers
All seek to offer avenues to drawing us deeper into the heart of God.
Transformation Through Scripture is part of the “Contemplative Journey: A Year in the Christian Spiritual Disciplines” series of courses.
