In this three-course Systematic Theology Bundle, Dr. Michael Allen provides thorough and easy-to-follow teaching on several important Christian subjects: the doctrine of God, creation, Christ (Christology), the church (ecclesiology), salvation (soteriology), and last things (eschatology). Dr. Allen covers all of these subjects with a careful eye toward the breadth of Scripture, the mystery of the gospel, the church’s historical tradition, and application for contemporary ministry. These courses will show you that systematic theology is not a restrictive box or intellectual exercise, but a lens through which you are better enabled to live faithfully before God and lovingly among others.
R. Michael Allen is associate professor of systematic and historical theology and the dean of students at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando. He is eager to guide students to grow in their ability to retrieve theological riches from the past for the sake of renewing contemporary reflection, worship, and witness. In this vein, he is committed to Reformed catholicity as a confession and a posture for doing theology and approaching ministry today.
Prior to joining the faculty of RTS in 2015, Dr. Allen taught undergraduate and graduate students at Wheaton College and then taught at Knox Theological Seminary for five years, where he held the D. James Kennedy Chair of Systematic Theology and also served as dean of the faculty. With Dr. Scott Swain, he serves as general editor of the T&T Clark International Theological Commentary and the New Studies in Dogmatics series for Zondervan Academic. He also serves as book review editor for the renowned International Journal of Systematic Theology and is a teaching elder in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church.
