With the wide variety of courses available—ranging from 30 minutes to 20 hours—you can explore practically any topic. Here are a few courses from my coronavirus watch list:
1. Theology of Everyday Life with Daniel M. Doriani
Explore how theology can inform social and personal life. From eating to playing to friendship, this course looks at the importance of developing a deeper sense of the relevance of Scripture and Christian ethics across everything we do.
2. Christian Life from a Kingdom Perspective with Ben Witherington III
Look at worship, work, money, rest, and spiritual formation from a kingdom perspective. With work changing for many right now and sacrificial giving becoming more needful, this short course is immensely practical.
3. Gospel-Centered Counseling with Elyse Fitzpatrick
Students learn how to apply the good news of the gospel to everyday issues, uncover the relationship between the mind, emotions, and will, and more. With content covering love, grace, relationships, and rest, content is applicable for everyday life and perhaps even more so during coronavirus social isolation.
4. Cultural Engagement and Scripture with Darrell Bock
How do we live together well? How do we culturally engage in a way that’s best for everyone, considering the diversity we live in the midst of? (Sure, most of us are doing church online—but the answers to these questions still apply in the digital space.) Dr. Bock guides students through cultural engagement and Scripture and asks Christians to analyze the cultures they live in and the ways they structure their lives.
5. The Significance of the Resurrection with Douglas Moo, Craig Evans, and others
There’s no better time to rejoice in the joy of the resurrection. In this short, insightful course, respected theologians take students through Jesus’ death and resurrection.
Go ahead, get Faithlife Connect for 14 days free, choose your course, and focus on the Word regardless of what’s happening in the world.
