This subject discusses the foundations for successful theological studies and prepares students to understand the unique approaches followed at PBC. Students will consider why we study theology and how to “do theology” rather than learn it. The class will reflect on the authority of the Bible as the foundational source for theology. We will examine the uniqueness of the various theological disciplines and how the different subjects integrate within the course. Students will be introduced to the tension between theory and praxis, which underpins the courses at PBC. Students will consider the relationship between theology and service and develop a vision of what they wish to gain from their studies. Students will also be exposed to reading theology by engaging with N.T. Wright on Scripture and Karl Barth’s views on practising evangelical theology.
