wonderful gift at teaching the Bible, especially the Old Testament. He will
explain backgrounds, exegete the straightforward meaning of the text, solve
the mysteries you've always wondered about, and provide healthy application.
Starting immediately, Craig will be teaching a series on the Wisdom
Literature: Proverbs, Job, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, and the Psalms.
Sundays (church starts at 10.00) will be more homiletic, with enough tools
to help the hungry, but with the fruit of the exegesis given as theology and
Wednesdays (6.00-7.30) will lean more exegetical and allow students to
grapple with the message. Those who fully participate will work through the
core argument and theology of each book. This is particularly valuable in
Proverbs, Job and Ecclesiastes, as few people, for instance really grasp why
Job's friends are wrong (How did they sin against God?) and how the core
argument and the framework narrative (evidently added later) give different
answers to the problem of the book.
For directions to the church, which is located in Dinkytown, near the U of
