Archie Spencer, ThD
Associate Professor in the John H. Pickford Chair in Theology
Northwest Baptist Seminary
THS 571 – Theology 1
This course lays a foundation for theological study and reflection in all ACTS graduate degree programs. We will begin with a discussion of the nature and importance of theology and a review of key tools and methodological principles for the Christian thinker. We will also reflect on the particular dynamics of doing theology in the Evangelical and Believers’ Church tradition. As an illustration of good theological reflection in action, we will explore the doctrines of revelation and Scripture, which are basic to our work. And we will provide a practical orientation to the expectations and opportunities for theological study in the ACTS curriculum.
