Theology of John Webster - 2.00 Hours

REGISTRATION OF THIS COURSE MUST BE COMPLETED BY JUNE 6th. This is a HYBRID COURSE that will incorporate e-learning components prior to the on-campus class dates. Course activities start the week of June 6th.

This course involves a close study of the writings of John Webster. Students grow in their ability to read his texts directly and to appreciate the systematic framework of his thought more broadly. In viewing his work closely and broadly alike, its relationship to other theologians is examined, beginning with his early work on modern Protestant theology and moving through to his later, extended engagement of early fathers, medieval doctors, and post-Reformation Reformed scholastics. His practice of theology is examined with respect to various doctrines (e.g. God, covenant, church) as well as with respect to its underlying methodological approach to “theological theology” as an exercise in “biblical reasoning.”

Preaching from Luke/Acts - 3.00 Hours

NOTE: REGISTRATION FOR THIS COURSE IS OPEN FROM APRIL 1 - MAY 15 Preaching Luke and Acts is both challenging and rewarding. The challenges stem from the length of Luke and Acts, and from the hermeneutical challenges posed by each book (“Do miracles happen today?” “Should Christians speak in tongues?”). The rewards stem from the main concern of each book – the person and work of Jesus Christ. In this course, we will think about how to interpret, explain, and apply these two books in a way that keeps Christ central to our preaching and teaching ministries

CLASS MEETS ON TWO WEEKENDS:
Sep 9 (4pm-10pm) and Sep 10 (9am-6pm); Dec 9 (4pm-10pm) and Dec 10 (9am-6pm)

This course seeks to develop spiritual formation by studying the historical development and content of spiritual theology and leadership, focusing particularly on the resources of the Anglican tradition and its relationship with the broader Biblical, historical, and ecumenical context.

We will explore the integration of the Anglican spiritual tradition and practical theology. The course concerns both the individual's spiritual life and the special responsibilities of the ordained person for assisting in the spiritual development of others. Consequently, the course contains both academic and experiential elements meant not only to foster in participants an intellectus fidei (a faithful understanding), but also to assist in developing a habitus fidei (a faithful character) that is embodied in a personalized praxis fidei (a faithful practice).

The Pastor as Prophet - 3.00 Hours

NOTE: Registration for this course will be open from November 1 – December 15 Preaching Old Testament narrative texts is often neglected by the church. The reasons for this neglect are complex and complicated. Part of the problem is the church’s difficulty in seeing the application of OT narrative texts that appear to be so strange and esoteric. In this course, we will focus on the means and methods of preaching OT narrative texts. OT historical narrative can be most challenging and difficult to interpret and to preach, but it can also provide wonderful, in-depth training and theology when appropriately understood.

Augustine and the City of God - 3.00 Hours

NOTE: Registration for this course will be open from November 1 – December 15 In this course we explore the life and theology of Augustine of Hippo, reflecting particularly on his City of God and the long, varied reception history of this work. We consider how it serves as a guide to engaging in apologetic discussion with non-Christians, whether in antiquity or in contemporary form. We also consider how it guides our public theology and engagement of a host of pastoral challenges. Through exploring this classic text, students grow in their confidence and competence to engage Augustine’s works on their own as a prompt and resource for pastoral theology and leadership today.
