School of the Living Word ( CHR 216 )

This course was developed as a mentoring process that would establish and strengthen an approach to the scriptures that lets them live (Heb. 4:12). That is, we come to the Bible text to hear from Him, the Living Word. We emphasize personal application rather than pursing, for example, metaphysics, systematic theology, or philosophical speculation. A leading elder does most of the teaching, drawing on the time-honored tradition of being mentored by an established teacher and leader. An epistemology that specifically believes in and practices daily the importance of being taught by divine relational revelation is adhered to and practiced. The primary methods are written questions about the passage we are considering, daily written answers by each student, meditation, worship, personal prayer, and a Socratic classroom climate where the leader guides by asking questions to stimulate deeper understanding, universal participation by the students, and active response to what God is saying.
