 Summer 2018 courses and descriptions:

Faith and Reason: Philosophy of Religion* - June 25-29th, 9 am -6 pm with Dr. Stanglin 

Popular culture asserts that faith and reason are incompatible, and that anyone with faith must be irrational.  Is this true?  In a culture that is increasingly hostile to faith, Christian disciples should be prepared to give an intelligible account of their faith.

Sometimes Christians are discouraged from acknowledging the puzzles or asking the tough questions.  But the Christian community ought to be a safe place for such discussions, and informed believers must be ready to handle some of the difficult questions raised by the faithful about their faith. 
 
This course will take up topics related to God and Christian faith from a philosophical perspective.  It will provide resources for better understanding and tools for intellectually responsible engagement with the issues.

*This intensive course packs a semester's worth of content into one week.  Readings and some assignments must be complete prior to the class meeting, and other assignments will be due after the week of class.

ONLINE - Paul and His Letters - May 29 - July 23, with Dr. Hall

The Apostle Paul stands as one of the central figures in Western history, and his writings have influenced the thinking of the Christian world for millennia. This course will focus on Paul's role in the development of early Christianity. We will study Paul’s background, his conversion, and details of his Christian missionary work especially noting his central role in shaping the doctrine and thought of early Gentile Christianity.
