The Good Life Course Pairing

Theology Matters (TH 201)

C.S. Lewis said, "If you do not listen to Theology, that will not mean that you have no ideas about God. It will mean that you have a lot of wrong ones—bad, muddled, out-of-date ideas." He was right. By reviewing aspects of biblical, historical, and contemporary theology, this course will give you the tools to sort out what you believe and why.
