The study of the Old Testament is not a dry, once-in-a-lifetime obligation to endure.  It is mining for treasure in an incredibly rich field.  The greatest treasure is the revelation of the Lord Himself in the Old Testament.  This course will be a survey of this revelation. It will emphasize the mastery of Bible content and structure, knowledge of the historical framework of the Biblical period, and basic concepts of Biblical interpretation.

Professor Warren Becker, Ph.D.
Psalm 139 indicates that God exquisitely designed each of us in our mother’s womb.  But are you aware that God has designed you to function best in a certain way in all areas of your life?  In Romans 12 the Apostle Paul discusses seven personal functional grace gifts.  In this course we will examine these seven gifts in detail to gain a better understanding of how God has designed and gifted us; and how we can use our individual God-given grace gift mix to bless and serve others at home, at school, or at work, at our church or ministry, in the world; bring honor and glory to God, and understand others better.

Professor Jeffery Trostle, Ph.D.
In this course, we will look at the barriers that have been erected between the natural and the supernatural, between earth and heaven, and how we can move from not just comprehending the truth to actually participating in it. We will draw from the church fathers, medieval theologians, as well as contemporary evangelical and Catholic thinkers to demonstrate that theology is not just an intellectual exercise but a spiritual discipline. Through this study, we will work at retrieving a sacramental worldview, cultivating a greater awareness of eternal mysteries, and eagerly partake of the divine life that transcends and transforms all earthly realities.

This course requires no prior knowledge of the Bible.  We will start with basic issues, such as the different kinds of Bibles and how to pick out a Bible.  Moving from an overview of the whole Bible to its smaller sections, the goal is to help the student be more confident, knowledgeable, and comfortable anywhere in the Scriptures.  In addition to general Bible content, we will also look at various Bible study resources.  The instructor will try to answer any questions that students might have about the Bible and how to study it.
