THEOn opens registration for the first online course on introduction to theology with a title: BUILDING YOUR THEOLOGY, taught by international scholars.
Does theology sometimes seem complicated, dry and abstract to you? It shouldn't be that way, if it is done properly. This course will help you learn to build your theology on the certain foundation of the Scriptures, but also with pathos and practical application. As an introduction to theology, this course teaches the purpose and importance of doing theology, the different sources of revelation, the meaning of inspiration, the proper interpretation of Scripture, and the key distinctive emphases of reformed theology.
It is based on the video lessons of Dr. Richard L. Pratt, Jr. Dr. Pratt is the president and founder of Third Millennium Ministries. He received his M.Div. from Union Theological Seminary and his Th.D. in Old Testament Studies from Harvard University. He formerly chaired the Old Testament department at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, Florida. Then he transitioned in 2006 from his teaching role at RTS to work full time with Third Millennium Ministries. Among his published books are: Every Thought Captive, Pray With Your Eyes Open, He Gave Us Stories, and Designed For Dignity.
In this course, we would like to accomplish the following goals:
1. We hope you will learn the proper nature and purpose of theology.
2. We hope you will develop a new love for theology, and that you will become excited about doing theology that flows from the Scriptures and changes your heart and life.
3. We hope you make changes in your life as a response to the teachings of this course. It should change the way you do theology and analyze theological expressions, taking into account the aspects of orthodoxy, orthopraxis, and orthopathos.
