Fall 2019 – Session 1

September 8–October 20 (7 weeks)

Evangelical theology 101 (Sanctuary)

Dan Treier

This course will provide an introductory survey of basic evangelical Protestant beliefs. We will go slowly, as simply as we can, without worrying too much about how far we get (in future years we will pick up where we leave off). This fourth installment of the series will resume our previous study of Creation and then address a Christian understanding of human beings.

Dan Treier is Knoedler Professor of Theology at Wheaton College Graduate School. He and Amy and Anna have been part of Immanuel for the last ten years. This course engages material from his textbook, Introducing Evangelical Theology, which is newly published by Baker.
