HIST 503 | Dr. Joyce Chan
Online, April 13 – June 19, 2015
A survey of the history of Christianity from the end of the New Testament era (ca. 100 C.E.) to the present through an examination of both primary and secondary texts with an emphasis on Christian theology, spirituality, ethics, institutional developments, and the interaction between culture and faith, in a global context.
THEO 503 World Religions
Online, April 13 – June 19, 2015
Instructor: Irving Hexham, Ph.D.
In our increasingly multi-cultural and multi-religious society a basic knowledge of various religious traditions other than Christianity is essential for anyone wishing to interact with their neighbours and society generally. This course provides an introduction to the study of African religious traditions; the Hindu tradition; Buddhism and other religions that belong to what will be called “the Yogic tradition.” We will then explore the varieties of Judaism, and look at Christianity as a world religion before examining Islam. At the beginning and throughout the course general questions about religion will be addressed.
MISS 535 | Allan Effa, Ph.D.
Online: April 13 – June 19, 2015
The notion of integral mission emerged out of 20th century discussion and debate in evangelical and ecumenical circles concerning the Church, the Gospel and the mission of God in the world. The course introduces that history through relevant readings, examines key biblical principles, and provides an overview of mission methods and strategies that illustrate mission in practice.
MISS 537 | Brian Stelck, Ph.D.
Online: June 29 – Sept 4, 2015
The process of ‘globalization’ is well established and shows few signs of slowing down. Who gets to eat, who gets medicine and who lives in peace are Christian community choices. Making decisions around these issues impacts how life is lived locally all around the world. In this course, students will explore how faithful followers of Christ act locally and globally by taking into account issues that are geo-political, economic, cultural, spiritual, material and environmental in nature. Students will be invited to consider how their understanding of God and the Gospel might expand to inform Christian social responsibility that is grounded in the call to incarnational mission.
This course is also offered at a doctoral level from June 2 – Sept 4, online. Click here for event page.
APPL 533 (and SPIR 533) | Gilly Sakakini
Online: June 29 – Sept 4 | Hybrid Intensive: Aug 10 – 14, 9am-3pm
This course uses the arts to explore aspects of the salvation narrative from creation, through crisis, calling, Christ’s conception, incarnation, cross, and Christian community. Each section parallels key features of the creative process through which students will be given opportunities to look afresh at the biblical text by engagement with art history, poetry, and the practical creative process of art making.
The week-long intensive is preceded by one month of online work. Refer to the syllabus for more details. Note that there is opportunity to take the intensive portion only, not for credit. Find more information here.

BIBL 503 | Dr. Craig Smith
Online: September 21 – November 27
Within the Christian church and secular society we see renewed controversy concerning Jesus. One’s perception of Jesus is contingent on which sources one views as genuine. The course starts with a survey of the non-biblical sources for the life, ministry, and teaching of Jesus. It then provides a historical overview of the most influential interpreters of Jesus. With this background, the student is prepared for a detailed study of the four New Testament gospels. While attention is given to the first century, the focus is on contemporary relevance of Jesus’ ministry and teaching for the life of the individual and church.
One scholar has said, “the kingdom of God is a revolution.” Jesus’ life and teaching on the kingdom of God started a revolution that redeems all creation. This course draws the student into Jesus the person, His teaching and ministry as they are presented uniquely through the four gospels so that you too can know the message which can impact your world. (3 credits)
