CLASSES FOR ADULTS: Three Electives

Book of Romans
Bob Phillips / Room E206
“Practical” Christianity grows out of faithfully applying one’s knowledge of “solid theology” found in God’s Word. Paul’s Epistle to the Romans is packed with both! This year, Ruling Elder Bob Phillips will be teaching through the deep theology AND practical exhortations for Christian living that Paul gave to the Christians in Rome.

This letter is truly the most important piece in the New Testament. It is purest Gospel. It is well worth a Christian’s while not only to memorize it word for word but also to occupy himself with it daily, as though it were the daily bread of the soul. It is impossible to read or to meditate on this letter too much or too well. The more one deals with it, the more precious it becomes and the better it tastes. ~Martin Luther (from the Preface to his Commentary on Romans).

All of God in All of Life: The Brothers Karamazov
Dr. Lynn Cates / Room E207
If you like literature with a Christian worldview, join us for a discussion of Fyodor Dostoevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov. Taking a close look at each of the “brothers,” we’ll analyze the relationship between spirit, body, and the mind seeking to better understand how sin enters into the equation.

The History and Theology of the Reformation
Marcus Serven / Room E208
This year is the recognition of the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. To commemorate this great event, we will be providing classes, displays, and relevant literature throughout the year. It is our great privilege to have Rev. Dr. Marcus Serven with us at Redeemer, who will be teaching a class on the Protestant Reformation.

Pastor Serven served as a Pastor in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church for thirty-seven years and has written extensively on the major Reformers, with a special interest on the Pastoral Theology of John Calvin. Dr. Serven’s class will begin with the “Rallying Cries of the Reformation,” he will teach through the major events and characters of the Reformation, and will conclude with “The Emergence of the English Puritans and Pilgrims.”
