An Educated Laity: An Obsolete Idea?

Program Date(s): 2011

Course Instructor: R. Bruce Douglass

The idea of a Biblically and theologically literate laity is basic to the Reformed understanding of Christian discipleship, and dedicated adherence to that idea has long been one of the defining features of Reformed piety. But in our time it is increasingly being called into question. These days life is simply too fast-paced, it is said, and people are too busy to practice the faith that way anymore. The purpose of this course is to explore the validity of that claim in the light of what Reformed Christians have said and done in the past about the role of learning in the practice of Christianity.
