Extramural study requires devotion and ongoing dedication. This is so much easier to sustain when you enjoy the process, like a favourite hobby, and when you don't feel alone. After nearly 20 years providing academic correspondence courses in theology, we have learned how to make home study more collegiate, more supportive and more successful for you.
That's why our distance tutors keep in contact with course participants during the whole course process... with ongoing help, comments and encouragement.
This course will explore the wild and wonderful world of the Corinthians and the way in which this struggling group of new Christians related to each other, to Paul, and to the world around them. Through a close reading of 1 & 2 Corinthians students will develop an understanding of these epistles as occasional documents, develop the skills for exegeting and interpreting such material, and consider the ways in which these letters have relevance for current church life and ministry.
