Discover the importance of the Western theological tradition.

One of the chief aims of a liberal arts education is to understand what kind of being man is, as well as his purpose. The study of man’s relationship to God is an essential element of this kind of education.

The Western theological tradition stretches back thousands of years to the time of the ancient Hebrews. This tradition has had a profound impact on the development of Western Civilization.

Join this free online course and explore the origins and development of Western theology from the Old Testament through the twentieth century. Lecture topics include God’s covenants with man, the gospel, grace, faith, and justification.

We'll send you a new lesson each week for ten weeks. The course features lectures by Hillsdale College faculty and includes discussion boards, suggested readings, and weekly quizzes.
