Survey of Theology (year-long)
A proper understanding of theology is helpful to understand the entire message of the Bible. Where Bible survey classes employ a biblical theological method – touching on topics as they arise in the text – this class will focus on a systematic approach to theology: discussing theology topic by topic, pulling from all of Scripture to bolster theological points. The scope is to cover basic topics of orthodox theology that all Christians share in common, exploration and discussion of topics where Christians differ for the purpose of encouraging conversation and ecumenism.

The specific focus on Mere Christianity will help a student to understand the work in depth as well as get a feel for Lewis’ style of conversational apologetics.

The Trinity (semester)
A proper understanding of theology is helpful to understand the entire message of the Bible.

The scope is to cover basic topics of orthodox theology that all Christians share in common with regards to the theological topics of Trinity, Theology proper, Christology, and Pneumatology.

The Gospel of John (semester)
Learning to study God’s Word in-depth is a skill worthy of any Christian. This course on the Gospel of John will train students concerning the value of reading through the text several times, noting specific themes important to the author, and getting a feel for understanding the original author and original audience. Students will also focus on specific study skills useful for the study of any biblical text. The primary concept to be discussed in the Gospel of John is how the author attempts to communicate what true discipleship looks like and the fallout of the choice to accept or reject Christ.

Exploring the Evidence for the Resurrection (year-long)
If Paul’s words in 1 Corinthians 15 are true, then the reality of the resurrection is the hinge upon which the Christian life turns – if Christ is not resurrected, then our faith is futile, we are still in our sins, those who follow Christ are lost, and Christians are to be pitied more than all men. If the historical fact of the resurrection is true, then it is a worthy topic of study for Christians, a worthy teaching to learn to defend, and a worthy lifestyle to live out. This course will examine the theological, historical, and practical elements of what the Bible, logic, and history reveals about the resurrection in order to better help the student understand the importance of the resurrection in the daily life of a Christian.
