Encounters 33 (June 2010) – The Psalms and Mission

The June 2010 edition of Encounters from Redcliffe College is devoted to the Psalms and mission. This follows the launch event of the Centre for the Study of Bible and Mission and the delivery of a lecture (on that occasion) by Gordon Wenham on ‘The Nations in the Psalms’. That lecture is included in this issue of Encounters, along with responses from Tim Davy (Centre for the Study of Bible and Mission), Eddie Arthur (Wycliffe Bible Translators), and David Spriggs (Bible Society). In addition to other articles on the Psalms and mission, the edition includes the excellent chapter on ‘Praying the Psalms’ from Ian Stackhouse’s book, The Day is Yours: Slow Spirituality in a Fast-Moving World (Bletchley: Authentic, 2008).
