Knox DMin Classes Kick Off in Bellingham, WA

Dr. Samuel Lamerson

You’ve probably heard about Knox Theological Seminary’s DMin in Preaching and Teaching. It’s an amazing opportunity to learn world-class theology while mastering the world’s best Bible study software.

The first round of classes kicked off in Bellingham, WA, August 13! If you missed the first classes, though, you don’t have to wait for the DMin program to start over. One of the wonderful things about the program is that the classes run cyclically. You can start the program anywhere in the cycle and be on track to earn your doctorate in three years.

Here’s a rundown of the first two classes that students attended:

Enriching Preaching through Logos Bible Software

This course introduces students to a foundation of sound exegetical competence upon which to build an effective teaching and preaching ministry. Developed to teach pastors and teachers the latest software tools in exegetical analysis, this class stresses both skill and time efficiency. Students learn to use Logos Bible Software as a resource—a source of thousands of illustrations and sermon texts to enrich biblical teaching. The class develops the timeless principles of classical rhetoric, as first identified by Aristotle, to give structure and force to students’ messages.

This class is taught by Dr. Samuel Lamerson, whose teaching philosophy can be expressed in this Yeats quotation: “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” Dr. Lamerson seeks to light a fire in his students causing them to become lifelong students of God’s Word. He uniquely combines academic research and teaching with 16 years of pastoral experience, ranging from senior pastor to director of children’s ministries.

The Art of Exegetical Theology in Preaching

Dr. Warren Gage

Moving beyond textual analysis, this course helps students look at the totality of the biblical canon’s structure. Students look to the iconic aspect of the text, developing an awareness of form and a sense of symbol. Exploring the redemptive message of the Bible as story, students learn to tell the story of heaven’s bridegroom, who came to slay the great, red dragon, to rescue his beloved, and to take her to the palace of his father, the king.

Instructor Dr. Warren Gage believes that students should be trained to preach the Word, be prepared in season and out of season to correct, rebuke, and encourage, with great patience and careful instruction (2 Tim. 4:2–3). Passionate about biblical theology, Dr. Gage relishes the opportunity to prepare Knox students for the highest of all callings—the Gospel ministry of our lord Jesus Christ.

Get Started on Your Doctorate Today

The next classes will be held in October in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

  • The Art of Exegetical Theology in Preaching—October 15–19 
  • Biblical Theology and Preaching That Inspires—October 22–26

Deadline to apply is September 19, so apply now and save your seat for the next round of classes!

The Lexham Bible Dictionary: A Growing, Dynamic Resource

In March, Encyclopædia Britannica Inc. announced that, after publishing encyclopedias for the last 200 years, they would not be printing books any longer. With information changing so rapidly, their encyclopedias were obsolete as soon as they were printed. Instead of focusing on physical books, Encyclopædia Britannica made the decision to focus on digital editions.

The beauty of electronic resources is that they don’t have to be static—they can be dynamic and flexible! As a world leader in electronic publishing, we’ve known this for a while. Take, for example, the Lexham Bible Dictionary.

The Lexham Bible Dictionary includes more than 1,500,000 words in 2,700-plus articles from over 250 different contributors. Not only can you expect in-depth, scholarly content—you can count on new articles and additions to existing articles developed in response to new discoveries, perspectives, and controversies. With the Lexham Bible Dictionary, you’re getting the latest information and the freshest perspective.

The Lexham Bible Dictionary is part of the bundle of resources that come with the Faithlife Study Bible.
