“Carey on the Road” is the Carey Institute’s initiative to provide theological education to the whole people of God, within the local church context.

Our church based program is a unique opportunity that allows for a group of students from a cluster of churches, to study theology together without leaving home.

The Carey Institute is offering a ten-course undergraduate Certificate in Ministry (CMin) in Calgary, beginning in October 2014. These courses may also be taken at the Diploma in Ministry (graduate) level.  The courses are practical, contextual and affordable. They are intended for men and women, new Christians, weary Christians, urban, rural, singles, couples, immigrants, employed, under-employed — everyone who wants to follow Jesus.

Course: BIBL 103 Biblical Interpretation SYLLABUS

Evangelical Christians affirm that God speaks through Holy Scripture.  By the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, the human authors of Scripture faithfully recorded God’s truth using language, thought forms, cultural environments and world views quite different from those of today.  This course will provide awareness of the cultural differences between the biblical and modern/postmodern world, and the need to approach biblical interpretation in a way that is faithful to the integrity and authority of Holy Scripture.
