"Toward a Scripture-Based Theology of Death in Our Hymnody" CrossAccent (journal name) In Toward a Scripture-Based Theology of Death in Our Hymnody. vol. 15, no. 1, Valparaiso: Association of Lutheran Church Musicians 2007 (Develops writings by Augustine, Luther, Walter Bouman, others)

Develops a theology of thinking about death through hymnody, to enable a full life in Christ in life and at death. Evaluates entries in Lutheran hymnals in shaping and nurturing a Christian’s thoughts about death, and in sharing, proclaiming, and strengthening one’s faith. Illustrates with hymns that do an appropriate or lesser job in addressing issues of a Christian’s death.

Marcia Falk is a Jewish poet, scholar, and translator with a deep love for liturgical texts – particularly the berakhot or blessings at the heart of Jewish prayer – and a passion for their continuing life in Jewish contexts far removed from the ancient communities that originated these forms. This article provides an introduction to Falk‘s work and to broader questions of feminist recasting of traditional liturgical forms.
