We always use the Bible as the core resource for our study and discussion. We also draw on a wide range of other resources, including bible commentaries, devotional materials, scholarly research and unorthodox perspectives. Our class includes people with a wide diversity of backgrounds, knowledge and perspectives. Much of the knowledge and insights in the class comes from members of the class.
 

Sample Topics

We typically study books of the Bible. However, as we do so, we address (often in detail) a wide range of questions and issues relevant to Christians today, such as
  • What are the core Christian beliefs? Is the list long or short?
  • How do Christian beliefs relate to living a Christian life?
  • Is there a Christian perspective on different social issues? If so, what is it?
  • Are science and religion compatible or in fundamental conflict?
  • What is the role of the Bible in a Christian life today? How should we read, understand and use the Bible today?
  • How should Christians view and act toward other religions?
  • Just what is Christian love? How can we live filled with Christian love?
  • What is the role of the church in society today? What should it be?
Format and Nature of Class
  • Combination of lecture and facilitated discussion.
  • Highly interactive.
  • Fun and humor are important; love and respect for one another are essential.
  • Different perspectives, controversy and debate are encouraged – as part of the ongoing search for truth and understanding among brothers and sisters in Christ who love and respect another.
