Course Highlight

The Gospel of Isaiah (Isa 40-55), OT363, 1.5cr
Lecturer: Dr Augustine Pagolu
Dates: Jan14, Feb 4, 11, 18, 25, Mar 4, 11, 18
Time: 7.30-9.30pm

"Due to low registration the course will start on 14th Jan instead of 7th Jan. There will not be classes on 21st Jan and 28th Jan. The remaining classes will be on Feb 4,11, 18, 25; March 4, 11, 18. If the registrations are still low by 13th Jan, the start date will be postponed to 4th Feb. and end on the 25th March."

"Isaiah 40–55 addresses many issues of great concern for Christians today. How are we to understand God’s action or lack of it for his people in contexts where they are a minority group or where they face ridicule, marginalization or even persecution? How are we to respond to growing secularism and materialism? Is prosperity and well-being guaranteed for Christians everywhere? What is the nature of salvation and well-being? How does God reveal his will to his people today? Does being a witness to Christ mean only cross-cultural mission?"
