The study of theology must never become an end in itself. The goal of sound doctrine is never to produce people who have full heads but empty hearts and barren lives… Instead, the knowledge of God and His truth is intended to lead us to know and worship him. The teaching of Scripture is given to ignite our hearts with devotion for God and to propel us to live for him. In short, robust theology must produce vibrant doxology.
--Steven J. Lawson

Course Description:

Truth. How do we discover it? How do we understand it? How do we apply it?

These foundational questions of life can be answered in the pages of God’s Word – the Bible. Through the systematic, guided study of scripture, this course seeks to equip women with a growing understanding of truth through knowing the God of all truth.

Using the Bible as our primary text, we will study ten categories of theology--Bibliology, Theology (Proper), Christology, Pneumatology, Anthropology, Hamartiology, Soteriology, Angelology, Ecclesiology, and Eschatology--through a combination of targeted reading assignments, homework questions, doctrinal instruction, in-class exercises, and class discussion. Our goal is to understand and be able to articulate scripture’s revelation of historical, objective, and rational truth, to grow deep in the knowledge and worship of our Lord, and to love and encourage one another in the body of Christ.

Course Objectives:

  1. understand fundamental precepts and practices of bible study
