Course Description
Dan Doriani and Jack Collins explore the significance of the Reformation for theology in historical and contemporary perspectives. Historically, this course outlines the social and theological setting of the Reformation, as well as the lives and beliefs of key reformers. Collins will examine the hermeneutics of Scripture, while Doriani will cover expository preaching -- two great Reformation inheritances -- with additional reflections on the Lordship of Christ in science and social reform. Arthur will cover Islam's reformational values in the Koran, such as God's rule over all of life and missiology, but will note how it is implemented in a very different way. Arthur will compare and contrast Christian and Islamic theologies of societal reformation with contemporary examples.

Venue

For several years now, Westminster College has provided the ideal venue for our Summer School. A theological college affiliated to Cambridge University, since 1844 it has served as a place for people to think through their faith and train for ministry. The college has recently undergone a major £7 million building project, so standards have never been higher. Of partuclar note to us, the bedrooms and lecture room have been stripped out and newly refurbished, with Wi-Fi connection.

All of the usual benefits of Westminster remain: high quality meals cooked by Westminster chefs, served in the beautiful dining hall; everything for the week is less than a three-minute walk away, with accommodation, lecture room, chapel and dining hall all in the same building -- all on the same corridor in fact. There is also on-site parking, with easy motorway access from the M11.

What's more, based at Westminster, course participants can enjoy all that Cambridge has to offer – majestic colleges and chapels, a lively market square, punting on the river, the Fitzwilliam Museum, and the historic Round Church.
