Theology in Evangelism

Course Description:

Everyone has a theology, even if they do not believe God exists. This course teaches students how to engage non-Christians and nominal Christians alike in theological conversations that are genuine exchanges and not pre-packaged formulas for evangelism. This course is for anyone who takes seriously Jesus' mandate for us to go into the world and make disciples.

Key Questions To Be Explored:

  • What does it mean to think evangelistically about theology?

  • What are wise ways to converse theologically with non-Christians?

  • How can we speak theologically without resorting to jargon?

  • How can we share theological insights with people who do not know God yet?

  • How might those who feel antagonistic toward Christianity respond to the gospel if it were explained through honest inquiry by someone being openly vulnerable?
