My last event with the Nottingham Centre for Bible, Ethics and Theology will be its next ‘Thinking Theologically with the Bible’ conference on October 13, featuring contributions from biblical scholars Tarah Van De Wiele and Katherine Southwood and theologians Simeon Zahl and Susannah Ticciati.
Our starting point is the book of Psalms, which has held a particular and special place in liturgies for the ill, afflicted and the dying in Jewish and Christian worship for more than two millennia. In these poems and songs the psalmists express their distress at various forms of illness and their hope for restoration to wellness. Our speakers will be drawing on the Psalms to engage in a constructive biblical and theological dialogue about contemporary concepts of wellness and illness.
