Seeking Christian Wisdom for Life's Biggest Questions

Center for Christian Thought

About this Course

This course will explore seven of life's biggest questions:

  1. What is Christian wisdom?
  2. What does it mean to be human?
  3. How do we grow?
  4. How can we disagree and still get along?
  5. What does it mean to love our neighbors?
  6. How can we become humble?
  7. How can we find meaning in suffering?

Each question is directly related to one of the seven research themes explored by Biola University’s Center for Christian Thought from 2012-2018:

  • Christian Scholarship in the 21st Century
  • Neuroscience & the Soul
  • Psychology & Spiritual Formation
  • Intellectual Virtue & Civil Discourse
  • The Meaning of Love
  • Humility: Moral, Religious, Intellectual
  • Suffering & the Good Life

Each lesson features a notable Biola University leader or professor—Barry Corey, J. P. Moreland, Steve L. Porter, Tim Muehlhoff, Thomas Crisp, Kent Dunnington, and Elizabeth Hall—all of whom are connected to the Center for Christian Thought either as research fellows or in a leadership capacity. That scholar will explain the big question and offer a practical approach to embodying wisdom for that question.

Through this course, you’ll develop a deeper understanding and love for some of life’s biggest questions, helping you to think more clearly about them and helping you to live more wisely in light of them.
