Course Descriptions

Biblical Spirituality for a 'Spiritual' World

Dr. Stephen YuilleOn Campus Module
Saturdays: 9am- 5pmJune 16th-17th & June 23rd-24thFridays: 1pm-8pmClassroom: 201

According to Alister McGrath, “spirituality is the outworking in real life of a person’s religious faith” - what we do with what we believe. Clearly, if the framework by which we understand Christian spirituality is unbiblical, then our conclusions regarding Christian spirituality will be unbiblical. That said, the purpose of this course is to study the biblical foundations of Christian spirituality. In so doing, we will avail ourselves of our rich evangelical heritage (Patristic, Medieval, Reformed, & Puritan) to inform our pursuit and practice of biblical spirituality.

Islam: Faith & Culture

Dr. Amal GendiHybrid (Live Stream)
Monday- Friday: 8:30 am- 4:30 pmMay 8th-12thClassroom: May 8th-May 11th Room 202Classroom: May 12th Room: 203

This course seeks to introduce the major religious and cultural dimensions of the Islamic world, both those that express its diversity and those that express its continuity. No previous work is presupposed. Emphasis will be given to the development of classical Islamic institutions and ideas as well as the diverse forms of Islamic religious and cultural life.

The course has three major purposes:
1. to provide students with a better and deeper understanding of the importance of the Islamic past upon the Islamic world today,
2. to reveal contemporary Muslims' own self-understanding of their system(s) of religious faith and practices,
3. to develop tools for dialogue and faith communication with Muslims.

While it is not a history course, anyone taking it should come away with a basic grasp of the larger historical framework within which Islamic civilization has developed. Moreover, students will learn from Canadian Muslims themselves what it means to be a religious Muslim.
