Beatrice Brackin

Beatrice Brackin '16 reflects on how her faith has been shaped and strengthened through the academic rigor of her major and by the caring faculty of the Biblical & Theological Studies department.

Kateland Godat

"Missions Methods and Problems. It was the first time I had ever taken a class on missionary life. It really taught me a lot about missions and how it’s not this fairytale adventure that people expect it to be. People expect missionaries to be perfect people with perfect adventurous lives, but sometimes you’re just a regular fallen person doing the average daily activities, and that’s okay."
 - Kateland Godat '19

"Old Testament Introduction with Dr. Scott Jones. Dr. Jones is the man. He has a brilliant way of making Biblical scholarship come to life. In the class, Dr. Jones gives you a peek into the world of the Ancient Near East. Building historical context around the Old Testament was illuminating. Every class blew my mind. I would immediately pull out my phone to text my parents or friends something crazy I had learned."
 - Brad Assaraf '19

Andrew Fultz

"Doctrine I with Dr. Kapic. More distinctly than anything or anyone else at Covenant, Kapic has helped me understand what it means to intentionally pursue faithful living in every area of my life. This began in Doctrine I, but has also continued in his other classes like Doctrine II, Christology, and Christian Spirituality. One of the first concepts we wrestled with in Doctrine I discussed the dynamics of how not only does our theology inform our lives as acts of worship, but simultaneously our lives inform our theology. You’ll have to take a class with him to really begin to unpack what that means, but Kapic has really helped me grasp the significance of this idea and how to live in response to it."

Dr. Ward discusses biblical studies at Covenant, through which students learn to draw out the inspired meaning of scripture.
