M.B.S. Theology Seminar is a structured study with the objective of articulating a comprehensive theological position statement. This internet-directed course of study includes elective reading, weekly written projects, and a comprehensive position paper. As a result of taking this class, the student will a) demonstrate the ability to correlate the data of systematic theology in a fashion that demonstrates internal consistency; b) be able to organize and articulate the results of theological research on an analytical level; c) correlate biblical data with the conclusions of his doctrinal statement; d) be able to constructively interact with colleagues by analyzing the theological work of peers, assimilating the critiques of colleagues, and demonstrating improved theological expressions as a result; and e) formulate a clearly articulated and comprehensive written doctrinal statement.
