Posted by Catholic Distance University on Mon, Feb 06, 2017 @ 11:20 PM

cbrown.jpgLearn to apply the practical skills needed to enrich your spiritual life! Applied Catholic Spirituality will be taught by Dr. Carole Brown, Director of the Office of New Evangelization for the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City. Beginning with the teachings of Christ as recorded in the Gospels, Dr. Brown will explore the three stages of spiritual life, St. John Paul II’s teachings on personal conversion, as well as the rich variety of Christian practices illustrated in the lives and teachings of the saints. This course is taught at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.

Brown.jpgOur Scripture and Salvation History course is a journey through the Bible as the Catholic Church’s foundational narrative, beginning with the story of creation and the fall, through God’s promise to Abraham, the covenant with Israel at Sinai and Deuteronomy and the eventual collapse of the Davidic Kingdom under the Deuteronomic covenant.  The course crescendos with the solution to the problems of the law in the Old Testament and the eventual fulfillment of God’s promises through the Person and work of Jesus Christ and his Church.  Dr. Brown explains critical interpretive issues and wrestles with disputed questions as you learn various ways of making sense of the Bible as a unified and coherent story with profound implications for today.  Join Dr. Peter Brown on the journey of salvation.

Both courses begin on March 6th, so register today! To browse all of our Winter II term courses, click here.
