This course will provide, for each student, knowledge of basic approaches to and foundations for the study of Christian theology, with an emphasis on the doctrinal teachings, themselves, so that at course end students will have an understanding of the most central key doctrine of Christian Theology. Learning outcomes, then, include:
- Being familiar with the nature, sources, and major themes of Christian theology. As this is an introductory course there will not be opportunity to investigate all topics as deeply as could be pursued.
- Utilizing the doctrine of the trinity and other traditional themes of Biblical and Systematic Theology in an informative (and, hopefully, transformative) summarization of the Christian Faith and as lens through which to view theology and the Christian life.
- Understanding that the student is a theologian, regardless of one’s chosen vocation, and one who is personally called to embrace the theological task as part of her/his call to be a Christian.
A modern translation of the Bible (e.g., ESV, NIV, NRSV, NASB, NKJV) should be brought to class each day we meet.
