CL.004 The Old Testament for a Complex World
Taught by Prof. Cameron B. R. Howard, associate professor of Old Testament at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota. 6:30-8 p.m. Wednesdays, Feb. 2-23, via Zoom only.
Cameron Howard is associate professor of Old Testament at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota. Luther is the largest seminary in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Her latest book bears the same title as the course. She completed it during the pandemic. Dr. Howard writes: “Despite its reputation as dusty and strange, the texts of the Old Testament reflect complex, turbulent, and dynamic times for people of faith—times very much like our own.” In these four classes, she will explore how the Old Testament shapes our lives today and will help us rethink some of our assumptions and attitudes about the Hebrew scriptures. Ultimately, she will illustrate how the biblical foundation of the Old Testament can not only increase our faith but transform it.
