Recommended Reading Recommendation

From "Most historical theology texts follow Christian beliefs chronologically, discussing notable doctrinal developments for all areas of theology according to their historical appearance. And while this may be good history, it can make for confusing theology, with the classic theological loci scattered throughout various time periods, movements, and controversies. In Historical Theology, Gregg Allison offers students the opportunity to study the historical development of theology according to a topical-chronological arrangement, setting out the history of Christian doctrine one theological element at a time."

Western Seminary Review: Theology in Everyday Life

by Derek Hiebert
(Seattle, WA, USA)

I earned my MA in Biblical Theological Studies 8 years ago. The theological training I received at Western has been so useful in my approach to making disciples in everyday life.

Our learning and discussions in the classroom always came with the trajectory of tackling real life. We were always encouraged to engage and embrace the mess and brokenness of life because of sin - which contains uncertain and hard-to-explain situations - and not just provide pat answers, all while keeping the gospel central.

The training and overall culture of Western, I believe, is producing solid and faithful leaders for the sake of Christ's mission!
