Saturday School of Theology
Because of ongoing interest in theological classes, we will start a Saturday School of Theology this Saturday, May 12, 2012.
We will go through Louis Berkhof’s Systematic Theology, with additional resources from the Three Forms of Unity (Heidelberg Catechism, Belgic Confession, and Canons of Dort), Westminster Standards (Confession and Catechisms), and other readings.
We start with the first three chapters of “The Being of God” in Part One: The Doctrine of God:
I. The Existence of God
II. The Knowability of God
III. Relation of the Being and Attributes of God
The planned format will be:
8:30-9:30 a.m.: Lecture
9:45-11:00 a.m.: Group Discussion (over coffee and donuts, of course).
You can download the following handouts for printing, or you can purchase copies before class time:
