    "The Diffcult Psalms" led by Dr. Paul Raabe, professor of Old Testament at Concordia Seminary. Many Old Testament Psalms are easily adopted by Christians for their prayer and praise. However, there are some Psalms that can make Christians uncomfortable, such as those that complain about the silence and hiddenness of God and those that pray for God to destroy the Psalmist's enemies. During this session of Institute we will study the tough Psalms. Everyone is welcome.
