Man, Sin, & Holy Spirit

Michael H. Windsor

Fall 2022 | Tuesdays 9:00a–12:15p | Online Option | 3 credit hours

Man, Sin, and the Holy Spirit is an introduction to the biblical doctrines of anthropology, hamartiology, and pneumatology. 

As a result of attending the lectures, participating in class and small group discussions, completing the reading, and writing the position papers, the student will be able to: a) demonstrate comprehension of the scope of the biblical doctrines of humanity, sin and the Holy Spirit; b) assess the validity of a theological position in terms relative to its corresponding theological method; c) justify theological conclusions on the ground of contextually interpreted passages of Scripture; and d) compose theological expressions in terms that are conscious of and consistent with one’s own methodological principles.
