This course surveys the whole range of Christian doctrine as set forth in the Bible, grappled with and fought over in history, and debated in our day. The aim throughout is to give resources for deciding at each point what theological assertions and "moves" in discussion express a truly biblical faith. The course is a natural follow-up to Biblical Theology, inasmuch as Systematic Theology represents a re-thinking of biblical material so as to exhibit it as wisdom answering the folly of our time.
