The Humanitas Forum – Why and how to study theology…


“Whenever we think or hear or read or say anything about God, we are doing theology.” In this talk, Dr. Kelly Kapic will lead us in a discussion of what theology is and why it matters.  Not only concerned with content and method, Kapic will explore the skills, attitudes and spiritual practices needed as we seek to know what God is like and learn how to serve him.  As Kapic says, “Theology is about life. It is not a conversation our souls can afford to avoid.” 


This talk will examine several of the themes in Dr. Kapic’s most recent book, Little Book for New Theologians: Why and How to Study Theology.  Chapter 1 is available online.
