TS223Theology of the Westminster Confession of Faith
TS223 : Theology of the Westminster Confession of Faith (1.5 Credit)
Academic Year : AY 2019-2020 Sem 2
About this courseThe Westminster Confession of Faith (1646) is highly regarded as a summary of Christian theology in the Reformed tradition and continues to serve as the theological foundation of several denominations. But perhaps the most enduring significance of the WCF is its all-encompassing vision, so that practically no aspect of church or human life is left untouched. Many have found within the chapters of the WCF a coherence and clarity, a biblical orientation, and a commendable refusal to avoid difficult doctrines. The course will begin by setting the Westminster Assembly in its historical, political and theological contexts. It will then involve study of key chapters of the Westminster Confession, with input from the lecturer leading to seminar discussion.
