In this course Dr. Ben Witherington III unpacks the primary aspects of Christian life through the framework of the kingdom of God. The course covers the topics of work, money, rest, and play, as well as the practices of worship and spiritual formation. Dr. Witherington explores these topics through the eyes of the kingdom, lending a perspective that incorporates both spirit and truth. In his words, those who take this course will find it “not only soul nourishing but challenging in the kinds of ways that it forces them to think about the ordinary, mundane Christian life in a profound, theological, kingdom kind of way.”

    It might just be that too many topics were covered in two hours, but I found that none of the topics were touched on at depth to be really insightful or helpful. The course feels more like an introduction to start studying these things rather than a course on the topics. In some ways Ben says as much, saying that you really need to get his six books on the topics to fully experience the course. Maybe it's better to just get those books and skip this course. Also, I found that he would somewhat often say that most people don't understand the context of a passage, but then his presentation of the context often felt unconvincing at full of equivocation (for example, does "work" mean "career", does "work" mean "labor", does "work" mean the good one does in the world? He uses the word in a very unclear way then applies verses that seem to be referring to specific aspects of work. In all, I couldn't really apply anything, but I like Ben's work in general so this isn't meant as a criticism of him and the many valuable resources he's produced.
