Class Description: We will explore common and challenging questions that often come up for Christians in our own minds and when discussing our faith with others. The course will start with general questions such as “What is the Bible?” and “Why should we believe what it says?” and then progress towards more specific ones like, “What are the different views on salvation and how should we define it?” Each week will address one of these questions through class discussion. In addition to prepared questions, students will be required come to class with a critical question they have or have been asked.
