Join us in the Spring semester for a course on CH/TH 03223 – John Wesley’s Practical Theology. This class is an advanced study of the theology of John Wesley. It focuses on the type of theological reflection that Wesley characterizes as“practical divinity,” which emphasizes the practice of discipleship, the character ofChristian community, and the experience of present salvation.
This class is perfect for anyone wanting to learn more about John Wesley and early Methodism, and anyone working on papers relevant to UMC ordination. We will meet on-campus five times: Jan. 26, Feb. 23, March 16, April 14, May 4 from 8:00 – 12:30. It is also a hybrid course, meaning that we’ll supplement face-to-face class sessions with some online lectures and activities.
This class is open to both online and face-to-face auditors. If you’re not enrolled as a student at MTS but are interested in taking the class for credit or as an auditor, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 901-334-5857.
The class is taught by Dr. Michael K. Turner. Dr. Turner is the Associate Professor of the History of Christianity and Wesleyan Studies and the Director of the Methodist House of Studies at Memphis Theological Seminary. He has devoted much of his scholarly career to lecturing, teaching, and writing about early Methodism.
