Fall Classes

I registered for my last year of fall classes!! A lot has changed in registration since I left last summer; it's all done online now and could not be easier, but you have to be quick!

Here are my fall classes with descriptions:

Exodus and Torah
This course consists of two related parts: (1) an overview of the first five books of the Old Testament in which topics of an isagogical nature will be discussed; (2) an exegetical study of selected sections of Exodus on the basis of the Hebrew text.

Pastor as Counselor
Theoretical and practical consideration of counseling foundations, techniques, and practices as these pertain to parish and institutional ministries, with a view toward developing a personal methodological approach to pastoral counseling for individuals and families which integrates the Law/Gospel principle.

European Lutheranism
Continental and Scandinavian Lutheranism prior to the Prussian Union of 1817 and its ramifications and consolidation during the 19th and 20th centuries. Special emphasis: theology, missions, and church-state relations.

The work and person of Christ according to Scripture. The Christological problems and conclusions of the early church. The Christology of the Reformation. The modern discussion in Christology.

Byzantine Theology
A study of the Eastern Orthodox churches in the context of their history and church life, based on readings in ancient and contemporary Orthodox writers, with special focus on the doctrines of God, salvation, and the church.
