Seminary offers free class, special campus visit opportunities

Are Christians who believe in a traditional doctrine of hell mean-spirited and irrational?

Should Christians in the postmodern era abandon the biblical teaching of hell because it is too offensive?

These questions and others will be addressed in a free class taught by Baptist Bible Seminary Dean Dr. Mike Stallard in January, a special opportunity for students who have never taken a seminary class before.

The free course will be offered on campus 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Tuesday-Friday, January 3-6, 2012.

A Special Course
"Spotlight on Issues in Theology: Apologetics: A Defense of the Doctrine of Hell" develops the biblical doctrine of hell with a commitment to grammatical-historical interpretation. It also interacts with alternative views put forward by evangelicals and other professing Christians.

The one-week course is designed to deal annually with a major current issue or issues in biblical and theological studies which impact doctrinal formation and church practice. After successfully completing the 2012 course, students will be able to recognize and understand the traditional doctrine of eternal punishment, discuss and evaluate alternative views, and articulate and verbalize a biblical response to such views.

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.

A Special Opportunity
It also 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.
