Systematic Theology for Pastoral Ministry, Christian Thinking, and Public Theology

Why We Need It, Where to Start
Once hailed as “the Queen of the Sciences” the very idea of systematic theology has fallen under unjust suspicion and neglect in our time (even in evangelical circles). This workshop will demonstrate the biblical basis of systematic theology, affirm its legitimacy, necessity and importance, and identify some significant ways it serves us in pastoral ministry, Christian thinking and public theology. It will also give recommendations on where to begin in studying this important field.
