Psalms: The Book of All Saints - I Hope in God

Description: Lecture given Wednesday, February 20, 2002, 9:45 AM at Abilene Christian University: "When we read the poetry of Israel it is like looking into a mirror. We see that living under the rule of God sets us apart from those who oppose God, and yet our righteousness pales when we encounter God of perfect righteousness. We draw back in fear, but cry out in hope - and our hope is not misplaced. Crying to God is not an encounter with the dull ears of night; it is an experience of being heard, forgiven and lifted from the depths."

Description: Lecture given Wednesday, February 20, 2002, 9:45 AM at Abilene Christian University: "Is God really with us in any way that matters when we can't see any miracles in life?

Since miracles have always been rather rare, even in biblical times, how does God act in our world when axe heads don't float, the blind stay blind, and the lame still need wheelchairs? By looking at the lives of Ruth and Esther we will see God's sovereignty working behind the scenes from the peasant's shack to the palace suite and find parallels in contemporary life."
