Many of you started your second semester over a month ago! For whatever reason, my winter break was six weeks, which was amazing (even though any length of break doesn’t seem to be long enough).
Since the semester just started for me, I thought it would be appropriate to share with you, my blogdience, a few of my new classes!
Foundations of Christian Thought
This class is easily my favorite so far. The main idea behind the course is to learn to engage our minds with truth through Scripture, apologetics, philosophy, theology, and more. On the first day of class, our professor took out his guitar and led us in worship, and it was awesome. One of the books we go through is “Mere Christianity” by C. S. Lewis.
*If you’ve thought about coming to Biola and checking it out, you should (get it?).
Old Testament History and Literature
Another class that I’m stoked about is OT. In this class, we’re going through the story of the Old Testament, looking closely at each of the narrative books in order to grow in our perspective of the Bible as a whole. Our professor is passionate about informing fellow believers the importance and the beauty of the Old Testament.
*Come to Biola and take it, it’s Lit.
Intro to Philosophy
This was a class that I added last minute due to a schedule issue, but, after the first class, my decision was completely affirmed. We are going to be reading about the great philosophers such as Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. On the first day of class, we learned about arguments, what makes them valid or invalid, and rational support of premises.
*You’d be So-cratezy not to come check out these classes! They’re Aris-totally awesome (okay I’m sorry, I’ll stop).
My other classes include Greek II (a pretty heavy work-load), Music Appreciation (a class about exploring music), and Studies in Critical Writing and Thinking II (a cool english class).
If you’re looking for a rich education with countless opportunities to expand your way of thinking in engaging and cool areas, I don’t know if there’s a better place than Biola. (But I’m kind of biased, so you should come see for yourself!)
I hope your semester has been fantastic so far, and I’m hoping and praying that you’ll have a great last stretch of the school year!
