On October 19th, a group of pastors and Bible teachers gathered at First Baptist Covington, Louisiana for a morning of Bible study and fellowship focused on the book of Psalms.
During the first morning session, Dr. Wayne VanHorn discussed the history and background of the Psalms. He is Dean of the School of Christian Studies and the Arts at Mississippi College. You can download a PowerPoint of Dr. VanHorn’s presentation and additional background content for the study of Psalms (and much more) here and here.
In the second session, Dr. Waylon Bailey explored ways to preach and teach the Psalms. Since 1989, he has served as pastor of the First Baptist Church of Covington, Louisiana. As a former professor of Old Testament and Hebrew at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, Waylon is the author of five books, including the New American Commentary on Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah.
During the lunch following each speaker’s presentation, we had a Q&A time with both men.
