2. An Actor’s Journey with the Life of David, featuring Jason Hildebrand
It’s one thing to read the story – but to write a play based on David’s life, and then to perform those scenes and those words over and over again? Jason will talk about ‘living’ the Life of David.
3. It’s a Cold and Broken Hallelujah! The Life of David in the Book of Psalms, featuring Dr. Jerry Shepherd
Taylor Seminary Old Testament professor Dr. Jerry Shepherd will share rich insights into the Psalms – the praise, the laments, the complaints.
