Current Classes

Summer 2020 Semester

  • In light of COVID-19 (and the Xenos Summer Institute cancellation), we have changed our summer intensive course.
  • ID 6000 (Scripture and the Problem of Divine Hiddenness)
    • Dr. Pat Reeder
    • Class Dates:
      • July 6-10
      • 9am-5pm each day
    • Description:
      • This course will examine the way in which Scripture connects with the philosopher’s Argument from Divine Hiddenness. This argument has numerous parallels with the argument from evil, but also departs from it in crucial ways. It has been referred to as the epistemological argument from evil: instead of the observable presence of evil repudiating God’s existence, this argument depends on the observable presence of certain types of unbelief. Unlike the ancient argument from evil, the argument from divine hiddenness is very recent. The essence of the argument can be boiled down into the following questions. Assuming God is loving, why does he make it so hard to believe in him? Why are there so many people who do not believe in him apparently without culpability? Nevertheless, Scripture teaches that God wants everyone to know him (II Peter 3:9, I Tim 2:4). Where does this leave us? The course is designed to teach student to competently synthesize philosophical argument with scriptural exposition.
