Instructor: Erin Fielding


Course Description: For many, reading the Old Testament can be a daunting task.  This course teaches students how to better interact with these ancient texts.  We will steer clear of specific doctrinal teachings while upholding the story of the gospel as made known throughout the entire Bible.

Course Objectives: By the end of the year,  students will have a better understanding of the types of literature used in the Old Testament (books of law, history, poetry, and prophecy) as well as the general content of each book.  They will also begin to see how the Old Testament is connected to the New Testament.
