THEO 500

Systematic Theology Overview

Course Description

Gain an introductory grasp of the central doctrines and tasks of Christian theology. Learn to think doctrinally while situating theology within the industrialized West's post-Christian context. Reflect on Christianity's central doctrines in relation to a contemporary society constituted by deep pluralisms, where the logic of Christian thought and praxis are often influenced by political ideologies and superficial doctrinal understandings. From here, develop a rich missional fidelity that will shape your life in the world.

Assignments for this course will be marked by a qualified grader. Dr. McGrath will be joining live via Zoom for the class sessions and interactions, but students are still welcome and encouraged to join us onsite.

What I love about Regent is that it’s a place for people who have questions about their ordinary lives. Not just academic theological questions, but questions about what it means to live the good life or be faithful. Not just a space for heady conversations but a place to wrestle with faith and a place where they can belong.” — Vivian Lee (MATS student)
