TH200 Christian Thought: Orthodoxy and Heresy

not enough ratings
In her approachable and relatable teaching style, Dr. Beth Felker Jones explains major doctrines and heresies of the Christian faith. She describes the concepts of divine revelation, the Trinity, the fall, salvation, grace and free will, and the differences between Calvinism and Arminianism. You’ll gain a basic understanding of pneumatology (the study of the Holy Spirit), ecclesiology (the study of the Church), eschatology (the study of end times), and the many related heresies. Additionally, you’ll learn to harmonize Scripture, tradition, experience, and reason in understanding and forming your own theology.
