Fall term at Regent

I have started back here at Regent College and am really looking forward to this term. Here is a snapshop of my lineup for the term:

HIST/SPIR 500 - The Christian Spirit: A Hitory of Christian Spirituality - Professor Bruch Hindmarsh
Required texts:
Bradley Holt - Thirsty for God: A Brief History of Christian Spirituality
Rowan Williams - Wound of Knowledge
Various other weekly readings

THEO 715 - Theology Seminar: John Calvin’s Institutes - Professor Hans Boersma
Required texts:
John Calvin - Institutes of the Christian Religion

LANG 510 - Introductory Hebrew - Professor David Diewert
Required texts:
Allen Ross - Introducing Biblical Hebrew

THEO 607 - Systematic Theology C: Pneumatology, Ecclesiology, and Eschatology - Professor Hans Boersma
Required texts:
Alister McGrath - Christian Theology
Hans Urs Von Balthasar - The Dramatis Personae: The Person in Christ
St. Basil the Great - On the Holy Spirit
Various other weekly readings

There is definitely going to be a lot of reading (more than just what you see here) and writing this term and Hebrew is going to kick me in the butt! It will be an interesting fall.

Ή χάρις του κυρίου ημων Ίησου Χριστου μεθ’ υμων.

    I envy you.

    Hebrew is one language I dream of learning.
    Because, I believe that if one prays in Hebrew God answers without delay. Because, HE is more familiar with the language than the modern languages of the world.

    Hey that sounds great!!

    I’d love to hear how you get along with Calvin’s Institutes. I’ve been meaning to have a quick read of them but I can’t seem to get past my own text books at the moment.
    It’ll also be good to hear how you get along with your systematic Theology C class. I’m doing one at the moment on Kingdom Eschatology etc.

    Peace out from the land of the kiwi

    Thanks folks! I am really looking forward to it! I am not really sure if I agree with your statements Ekenyerengozi, but Hebrew is definitely a beautiful language to learn!

    I am looking forward to reading the Institutes as I have had no expereince with them before (eventhough I grew up in a Presbyterian church!). And I think it is impossible to have a quick read of their 1500+ pages! ;)

    We read the McGrath book when I was in seminary. It’s a pretty good survey.

    Awesome! You lucky son of a pig. ;)

    Chad had a copy of “Institutes” on his bookshelf… and maybe only Hans will ever get him to read it. ;)

    I’m so jealous that you’re taking Hebrew…but where’s the Greek???

    If you get a chance, check my LJ-I’ve got a theology thing that I don’t understand. It may come up in your theology seminar because I think it’s related to Calvinism.

    (and 607 sounds awesome!)
