WACO, Texas (Feb. 11, 2019) – William Bellinger, Ph.D., The W. Marshall and Lulie Craig Chairholder in Bible and chair of the department of religion in Baylor University’s College of Arts & Sciences, will present “A School of Prayer” at the W.C. Dobbs Endowed Lectureship in Applied Christianity.

The lecture will take place at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12, in the Paul W. Powel Chapel in George W. Truett Theological Seminary, 1100 S. Third St.

Bellinger has served as director of graduate studies and is an internationally recognized scholar. He has published extensively on the Old Testament and his current projects are on the Psalms and Old Testament theology.

“I will be suggesting that the book of Psalms is a School of Prayer for believers. We all can learn much to enrich a profound and transparent spirituality from praying the prayers for help in the book of Psalms, “ said Bellinger.

“As a distinguished scholar and teacher of the Psalms, Dr. Bellinger brings both academic and pastoral insight into this ancient book,” said Kimlyn J. Bender, Ph.D., chairman of the lectures committee at George W. Truett Theological Seminary and professor of Christian theology. “His wisdom here will benefit all those who come to learn how the book of Psalms has shaped the church’s life through the centuries and continues to provide the church’s most ancient voice of its hymns, songs and prayers.”

The W.C. Dobbs Endowed Lectureship was established in 1995 by Dr. W.C. Dobbs of Mobile, Alabama, retired professor of Christian ethics at Mobile College of Mobile.
