BIB345 Bibliology and Hermeneutics (4)
The various hermeneutical systems demonstrating the soundness and superiority of the historical-grammatical approach
to biblical interpretation are discussed. In addition, the doctrine of Bibliology and its foundational relationship to all of
theology and ministry is presented. Finally, practical considerations in the study of God’s Word are reviewed.
BIB347 Expositional Research (2)
The student will be introduced to the methods of biblical and theological research in terms of traditional library methods,
as well as various computer and online systems.
BIB349 Dynamics of Grace (4)
The course will examine why the gospel is the energizing truth that drives the believer’s sanctification. In-depth attention
will be paid to the spiritual discipline of ongoing faith in the gospel (“preaching the gospel to oneself each day”).
Attention will also be given to the biblical connection between the gospel and the believer’s worship, walk, warfare,
witness, oneness, and worldview. The practical theology of this course is designed especially to address the “disconnect”
that commonly exists between faith and life—between doctrine and practice.
BIB362 Biblical Conflict Resolution (2)
This course is designed to help the student think biblically about conflict and how to respond to life’s conflicts in a way
that glorifies the Lord (1 Cor. 10:31). In particular, the student will be taught a model and a plan for how to think about
struggles in relationships and evaluate their own typical patterns of response. These principles apply to business and the
church, but there will be a special focus on handling marriage difficulties.
BIB363 Christian Worldview (4)
This class will examine why biblical worldview is about Total Reality, not just about religious truth. It will equip the
student to critique erroneous worldviews for the purpose of becoming effective in evangelism. The class will also
examine the need for, and the methodology used in, presuppositional apologetics. It will also consider the appropriate
use of Christian evidences and their proper place in the apologetic presentation.
