115.515 Reading the Bible
Jeremy Tattersall
This course aims to introduce the broad shape of the biblical story, and show how the Christian gospel is integral to biblical theology. It explores the unity, diversity, and central themes of the Bible to make sense of the relationships between the Bible, theology, and all of life.

201.515 Engaging Theology
Taryn Dryfhout
This course aims to introduce systematic theology and teach learners to think theologically. It examines God’s self-revelation, how we can understand that revelation, and why it is foundational for our faith. It then explores the arrangement of this revelation into a set of core beliefs, and their application to everyday living.

401.515 Formation
David Wells
This course aims to help learners reflect on personal and communal spiritual formation, through engagement with Scripture, theological understandings, and a variety of Christian spiritual traditions. This reflection will include (1) evaluation of key aspects of their own formation, (2) evaluation of their experiences of personal and communal strategies intended to facilitate spiritual growth, and (3) the development of spiritual practices which will strengthen their contribution to enhancing human wellbeing within their own social and cultural contexts.
