Overview

Theological Interpretation of Scripture in the Church provides a new way to think about Christian theology. In this course, Dr. Kevin J.

He shows the practical use of doctrine as a tool to grow disciples and explains how reading and studying Scripture is a key discipline in the disciple-making process.
