Dwelling with God : Psalms 120-134 for Indonesian worship
This ministry project seeks to discover the biblical and theological significance of Psalms 120-134 and provide suggestions for their use in Indonesian worship. Chapter 1 introduces the Indonesian context and the rationale, purpose, goals, methodology, limitations, and delimitations. Chapter 2 provides the biblical and theological foundation. Although the pilgrimage theme may be present, there is a greater theme: the restoration, renewal, and blessings from God dwelling among His people. Chapter 3 elaborates the canonical, historical, theocentric, Christocentric, eschatological, and devotional reading used in this project. It also proposes the psalm guided worship based on Psalms 120-134 as a paradigm for worship. Chapter 4 describes the Indonesian Church in its religious context, results of the survey, and recommendations to improve the use of psalms in corporate worship. Chapter 5 concludes with an evaluation of the project’s purpose and goals, strengths and weaknesses, theological and personal reflections, and suggestions for improvement.
