Basic Missional Theology provides the student with an understanding of the doctrinal truths of the Word of God in a challenging learning environment.   The basic text explores the categories of systematic theology, and introduces some of the doctrinal problems and issues that are faced by believers who serve Jesus Christ where worldviews collide.  Examples from many different cultures abound, illustrating the various ways in which worldview, culture, and human problems influence the development of theology around the world.

Rather than a restatement of the material tackled by the textbook, the classroom portion of the course engages the students in discussions and activities that foster clear thinking about the teachings of the Scriptures, and that encourage the development of critical skills for understanding and influencing healthy theological development within and across cultures.

BMT includes 44 hours of in-class instruction over the space of two weeks (Monday through Friday).  The student is expected to read the appropriate section of the textbook before the class (and that includes reading the Prolegomena unit, which will be supplied to the student early enough to allow preparation for Monday).
