Take a break and study God’s word with us this summer at Austin Graduate School of Theology.
In addition to the accredited B.A. and M.A. degree programs, anyone can audit on-campus courses for just $50/course tuition plus a $25 per semester campus fee. As an auditor, you don’t receive college credit and are not required to take exams or submit assignments. It’s a great way to deep dive into the Bible and theology. We’d love to have you with us. Which of these Summer 2017 on-campus courses sound appealing?
- NT4350e/NT5350e: The Gospel According to Paul (June 19-22, 26-27, and 29-30 from 5-10 p.m.), Dr. Peterson
The letters of Paul, the oldest surviving Christian writings, were addressed to congregations that had already heard the gospel and responded to it in faith. Paul’s reminders of the message his addresses had embraced as part of their conversion provide our earliest glimpse of Christian theology. The primary work of this course will be a close reading of the Pauline letters with the aim of identifying Paul’s references and allusions to the “formative instruction” of the churches that the letters addressed. We will also consider how Paul’s formative instruction compared to that of other apostles and early Christian teachers, how attention to it helps clarify the arguments Paul develops in each letter, and how it can inform teaching and preaching today.
ONLINE B.A. STUDENTS ONLY:
- MIN4350r.120: Servanthood & Sanity (May 30-July 25), Dr. T. Hall
This course examines biblical principles related to the Christian spirit, compassion, and personal management practices. The course provides emphasis toward analyzing goals, priorities, and attitudes and evaluation of value systems. A key focus is on leadership and ministry stress management methodologies.
- CS4363.120: Christian Encounters With Other Cultures (May 30-July 25), Instructor K. Moore
An historical and theological study of the encounter between Christianity and other world religions. Christian encounters with Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Islam and other religions will be assessed, with particular attention to recent developments in the global South and to the inception and development of Islam and its conflicted relationship with Christianity. Also discussed will be principles of communication, especially as they apply to the cross-cultural sharing of Christianity.
