OPEN HOUSE (Tuesday, August 18, 4 pm)

2015 FALL COURSES/SEMINARS
 
INTRODUCTION TO CHRISTIAN THEOLOGY (THE 410 / 610)
Instructor: Gilbert T. Crosby, Th.M.
The books of Samuel, Kings, and Chronicles comprise six of the twelve books of Old Testament history. They are extremely relevant for today, largely in a setting of tumultuous times with plenty of political and spiritual ups and downs for the Israelites. Most of the Old Testament books after them fit within their framework. These books present challenges for the student of God's Holy Word. They are lengthy, complex, and contain difficult chronological issues. We will seek to unravel difficulties and bring clarity and order to the understanding of this important section of Scripture.

This is a foundational course in understanding Christian Theology and will follow the ancient baptismal creed, commonly called the Apostles’ Creed. Students will engage the basic beliefs of the Christian Faith concerning God the Father, creation, Christian anthropology, Christology, soteriology, the Holy Spirit, ecclesiology, and eschatology. Fifteen Mon., Aug. 24 - 31, Sept. 14 – Dec. 7, 6 - 8:30 pm. $199 for personal growth or $345 for 3 semester credits. For required text information, call 514-3777.
