BSS19109  Basic Training for Defending the Faith

This video/discussion course by the late Dr. Greg Bahsen and faciltated by Donn LeVie Jr. will show you how to think as a Christian as you learn how to give a reasonable defense for the hope that is in you from a Presuppositional Apologetic approach. Our job as Christian apologists is not to change unbelieving hearts (that’s the Holy Spirit’s job), but to simply close the mouth of the unbeliever. This is a 5-part video series with facilitated discussion. Part 6 will provide an overview of the 5 major Christian apologetic approaches. Videos run 50 to 60 minutes each, with 30-40 minutes for discussion.

BSS19110  John Calvin and the Institutes of the Christian Religion

John Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion is one of the most influential books in history.  John T. McNeil said it this way, “Calvin’s Institutes holds a place in the short list of books that have notably affected the course of history.”  In this Endeavor class we will unpack this surprisingly accessible writing.  In addition, we will examine its history and its importance for understanding our protestant faith.

Note: We will be using The Institutes of the Christian Religion as our primary text. This class does not require that you read The Institutes for the class.  However, if you want to follow along the weekly readings, you can find the entire book online at http://www.ntslibrary.com/PDF%20Books/Calvin%20Institutes%20of%20Christian%20Religion.pdf
