    Transformation the Gospel Way: A Study in Philippians

    This course is also offered as SPIR 502

    More cynicism and confusion surrounds the issue of sanctification than any other Christian doctrine. In some circles, cynicism arises from reactions to triumphalist teachings, while in other settings, an overemphasis on justification by faith alone has led to a low expectation, even antinomianism. Confusion surrounds questions like: How do divine agency and human action coexist? Paul’s letter to the Philippians promises the possibility of joyful growth in Christ even in adversity. Uncover transformation that is gospel-motivated, person-centred, and that portrays a God-at-work as we-are-at-work compatibility.

    Old Testament Foundations

    This is one of our most popular courses and a great place to start if you want to deepen your knowledge of the Bible. We will present an overview of the background and contents of the books that make up the Old Testament, and will offer some reflection on how they are best read together as part of the Christian canon of Scripture.

    God's Faithful Character: The Key to the New Testament's Use of the Old

    How do we read the New Testament’s use of the Old Testament, especially those passages that seem to disregard the context, treat Scripture atomistically, or allegorize it? Attempts to “save” the New Testament authors have contributed to a range of different strategies, but this course takes a much more straightforward approach beginning with the central concern of the Scriptures: the revelation of God’s faithful saving character through the person of Christ.

    What kind of text are we dealing with in Daniel, and what difference should this make to our interpretation of the book? Have Christians rightly interpreted it over the centuries, and what are the boundaries of legitimate interpretation? These are some of the questions this course will address as we seek to understand what this “book of exile” has to say to the church and to the world in 2014 and beyond.

    Eating is one of the most profound ways we are related to each other, to the created world, and to God. Within the framework of Christian theology, consider some of the biological, ecological, psychological, aesthetic, spiritual, agricultural, and economic aspects of what, why, and how we eat. This course takes place on Galiano Island, and is offered in partnership with A Rocha Canada, with contributions from Matthew Humphrey and Shauna and David Anderson.

    How Do I Help a Hurting Friend?

    While the professional side of people-helping is necessary and important, many of us are called to speak into the lives of friends and family members who are hurting. We often engage in this ministry with fear and anxiety and with a sense of ignorance about why people hurt, what they can do about their pain, and how they can embrace their pain while believing in a God who loves and cares for them. In this course, we will focus on how to better understand hurting people, how to speak into their lives, and how to live a life that provides shalom to those around us.

    Become familiar with the major figures and features of the twentieth-century American prosperity gospel, tracing its late nineteenth-century metaphysical roots through black and white Pentecostalism to post-war revivals where it took shape. We will consider its effect on megachurches, televangelism, New Age, self-help, Pentecostalism, and pop religion as it spread across racial and economic divides. Additionally, we will examine how expectations of preachers changed as a result.

In this course, we approach these themes with a “scriptural imagination” informed by deep theological currents at work in biblical texts. We will discover that these themes yield much less and much more than we might think.

    Poet. Warrior. Shepherd. Assassin. Worshipper. Adulterer. David was a man after God’s own heart, but he was also utterly human—prone to anger, pride, lust, fear, self-pity, and more. Though much about him inspires us, not everything invites our admiration or imitation. In this course, we will enter deeply into the David story, not to find leadership principles but to reflect on the life of a real leader in real life with all its tensions, contradictions, serendipities, and opportunities.

The range and variety of Jesus films is extraordinary, including a growing number of non-western versions. Even the worst have flashes of insight and beauty; the best inspire deep reflection on the character at the heart of the Christian faith. Study some of the ways that Jesus has been depicted in film and how various portrayals converse with Scripture and Christian thought throughout the centuries.

    Calvin’s Other Points

    Calvin’s theology is widely believed to consist of the famous (or notorious)“Five Points” and nothing more. In this course, we will consider other aspects of Calvin’s thought that are neglected but have similar importance and interest—the knowledge of God and of ourselves; his Catholic Christianity; his account of God’s double gift: justification and sanctification; the two kingdoms and the significance of human culture; and God’s providence and fatalism.
