The book of Psalms has been used in Jewish and Christian worship for more than two millennia, with a particular and special place in liturgies for the ill, afflicted and the dying. In these poems and songs the psalmists express their distress at various forms of illness and their hope for restoration to wellness. This workshop is designed to facilitate a constructive biblical and theological dialogue about contemporary concepts of wellness and illness, drawing on the book of Psalms as a foundational text.
The format reflects CBET’s particular commitment to collaborative work between theologians and biblical scholars, featuring sustained reflections and ample time for discussion. Speakers include two Hebrew Bible scholars and two systematic theologians whose recent work has focused on ideas of illness and wellness in the ancient and contemporary world.
