Here is some information about summer courses I am teaching. We would be honored to have you join us. The video is a bit of Film Noir-inspired, whimsical reflection on our class for purposes of announcing the learning opportunity. The subject, however, could not be more consequential, somber, or timely.
We will do some theological detective work on the sources of the philosophical and religious trends since World War Two and consider a Biblical response of the Church. Whether for Doctor of Ministry credit (at any approved seminary) or for Master of Divinity credit (the courses are offered simultaneously to doctoral and masters levels) or audit and personal enrichment, we warmly welcome you to this eight-week online courses. We will read H. Richard Niebuhr, James Davison Hunter, Miroslav Volf, D. A. Carson, and Leslie Newbigin. Examining the influence of postmodern deconstructionists like Algerian-French philosopher Jacques Derrida (1930-2004), and the late, eminent social historian, Michael Foucault (1926-1984), our class will seek to locate Scripturally faithful responses, using Finding a Vision for Your Church: Assembly Required (P&R Publishing). We will research, write, discuss, and pray to establish a vision and mission for the local church that proclaims the Gospel of Jesus Christ while being “wise as serpents and innocent as doves” (Matthew 10:16). Let us be like
“the sons of Issachar, men who understood the times, with knowledge of what Israel should do” (1 Chronicles 12:32).
