Online Bible Study

Recently, Houston Baptist University began a certificate program available to anyone who wants to do online work in a particular area of interest. Robert Sloan has, in partnership with LifeWay, filmed one of the offerings, The Story of the Bible.

In this course of study, the long narrative of the Christian Scriptures is presented as a coherent plot. From Creation and the curse of the Fall to God’s intent to rescue the creation and its human stewards, through the children of Abraham, to Israel’s failure and her surprising success through an executed and resurrected messiah, the story of God’s plan to rescue the creation, and all peoples is presented through many surprising turns and ironic twists.  

Explaining the Bible’s own storyline reflects an important dimension of Sloan’s life and thinking – he loves seeing big issues of the past and present in the shape of a story.
