Suffering, loneliness, anger, sorrow, and stress touch all of our lives. They are part of the human experience and always have been, even in the ancient world. The Poetry and Prophecy books of the Bible show us that these feelings are not unfamiliar even to biblical authors. These books can encourage us through the highs and lows of life, as well as call us to repentance when we stray from God. This survey course is designed to introduce you to two types of biblical literature, Poetry and Prophecy, and their place in biblical history, with relevant application to God’s people today.

This course surveys the Poetical and Prophetical sections of the Bible. Five books are especially labelled as books of poetry: Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon. These books help us to address many of the life situations that we face every day such as suffering, loneliness, anger, sorrow, and stress. The Prophets were spokesmen who represented God to man. Their job was to call the Jews to repentance from sin and lead them in obeying God’s law. Each book of prophecy is discussed and placed in its historical setting. The author provides insights that will enable the student to appreciate these rich portions of God’s Word.
