Covenant theology is focus of free Seminary class

The key components of covenant theology will be the focus of a free class taught by Baptist Bible Seminary Dean Dr. Mike Stallard, a special opportunity for students who have never taken a seminary class before.

The free course will be offered on campus Tuesday-Friday, January 8-11, 2013.

For details and registration information, call 800.451.2287 or email BBSadmissions@bbc.edu.

"Spotlight on Issues in Theology: An Analysis of Covenant Theology" will detail important aspects of covenant theology, such as its hermeneutics, theological method, and structure. While areas of agreement will be noted, differences between covenant theology on one side and both dispensationalism and Baptist practice on the other will be highlighted.

Dispensationalism holds to historical-grammatical principles of interpreting the Bible, including prophecy. It differs from covenant theology with respect to the distinction between Israel and the Church. Baptists hold to believer's baptism by immersion instead of infant baptism by sprinkling, as usually practiced in covenant theology.

Dr. Stallard is a leader in advancing dispensationalism in the Church and is a founding member of the Council on Dispensational Hermeneutics, which held its fifth meeting earlier this year in Houston, TX.

The class is a one-credit course and is free for pastors, missionaries, and others who have never taken a course at BBS before. Students may also take it as a regular paid credit.

It offers a unique opportunity for potential seminary students to experience a class and learn more about BBS. Time to visit the campus, meet professors, and learn about many financial aid opportunities are also available. Limited on-campus housing is available for $15 a night.

Baptist Bible Seminary offers students a genuine blend of rigorous academic content and transformational hands-on applications. Six advanced degrees are available in several flexible formats.

To learn more, call 800.451.2287 or email pgolden@bbc.edu.
