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 heart of the class is the daily assignments. This is where transformation takes place. Each lesson will have a few pages of narrative to lay the groundwork and then you will be given assignments for the week. All seek to offer avenues to drawing us deeper into the heart of God.
The six-week class offers lessons on the following topics:
|1||Reading with the Mind|
|3||Reading the Psalms|
|4||Reading Scripture in Community|
|5||Reading with the Reformers|
|6||Reading Scripture with the Church Fathers|
Dr. David Wray will teach this class on the transformative nature of scripture. Dr. Wray teaches another course in Selah’s year-long Journey in the Contemplative Spiritual Disciples entitled “Communal Spirituality.” You can read his bio on the team page here.
