Have you ever thought about taking your knowledge of God to the next level? Maybe you’ve wanted all your life to read theology deeply but you’re intimidated at the prospect? Maybe you’ve never had the time to give or a guide to lead you?
From January to May this coming year, I will have the immense privilege of teaching an Introduction to Theology course at New College Franklin, and I would like you to consider joining me for the journey.
The course is designed to increase your knowledge of and appreciation for the discipline of systematic theology. The class will aim at expanding your theological understanding around four loci of theology: the work of Jesus Christ, the person and work of the Holy Spirit, the nature and work of church, and the doctrine of the end times.
There will be a weekly lecture on a particular theological topic and weekly reading assignments for class discussion. Any person auditing the course would be free to do as much or as little work outside of class as desired. I’ve posted the book list below in case you are interested in checking out the reading ahead of time.
- The Cross of Christ by John Stott
- Redemption Accomplished and Applied by John Murray
- The Holy Spirit by Sinclair Ferguson
- The Church by Edmund Clowney
- Systematic Theology by Louis Berkhof
- Additional articles and class handouts
The class will meet on Monday morning from 10:30-12:00 and Thursday afternoon from 1:00-2:30pm at Cornerstone Pres. Classes begin the week of January 12th. Due to the graciousness of the New College Franklin administration, any Cornerstone member is welcome to audit the class free of charge! If you join us, I truly believe it will prove to be a great opportunity to get to know your God better.
If you have questions about the class, interest in seeing the full syllabus, or want to register for it, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope to see you on January 12th!
