Our contemporary context increasingly views Christian faith and practice as irrelevant. When people talk about theology, they increasingly wonder, “Who cares?” But the ancient church believed the biblical narrative held significance for the crucial realities of life.
The Engaging Theology online course is an introductory theology series that grounds a treatment of standard systematic topics in the wider context of life and practice and shows the relevance of each doctrine to the church. It treats the essential doctrines of Christian orthodoxy by following the pattern of story, doctrinal exposition, theological relevance, and spiritual relevance.
The Engaging Theology online course is ideal for helping students and everyday people living in a post-Christian era engage seriously with the Christian faith.
All course material—instructional videos, readings, practical exercises, and quizzes—is available online for study at your own convenience.
