Studying Online with Regent College

Hi friends. As some of you know, I do a lot of teaching online. I have been a “distance education instructor” in a variety of forms for 16 years now. Continuing a series from earlier in the year, I want to highlight some of the places where I do my teaching. Here is a note about Regent College, an international Christian graduate school that is my alma mater, and where I teach a couple of Eugene Peterson’s courses on spiritual theology. Vancouver is a brilliant place to study, but difficult to access and expensive to live in. This year, many of Regent’s on-campus courses are online, so you have a unique opportunity to begin or continue your education at Regent in your own hometown. Below is the e-flyer that they sent to me (which you can access by clicking here); it focusses on Bible courses, but they have a whole host of different kinds of courses. If you are interested in applying, you can email me (junkola[at]gmail[dot]com) and I can have your application fee waived. You can also attend a sort of online ed orientation event for Regent on Dec 1st at 12pm Pacific/3pm Eastern (click here to register).

Start 2021 off right by diving into Scripture. All our Winter courses will be live online, so it’s a great time to take a Regent class — from anywhere in the world! Registration is open now.

Looking to lay a foundation in basics of the Bible, its context, and interpretation? Register for New Testament Foundations with George Guthrie or Biblical Exegesis with Mariam Kovalishyn. Wanting to more closely examine a specific book or text? Study the Psalms with Iain Provan or and James, 1 & 2 Peter, and Jude with Mariam Kovalishyn. Interested in a challenge? Drew Lewis’s Advanced Hebrew Readings can take you to the next level.

There’s also still time to register for our upcoming condensed course on Revelation, a complex book presented in an accessible way by Paul Spilsbury, January 5–9.

About Brenton Dickieson

“A Pilgrim in Narnia” is a blog project in reading and talking about the work of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the worlds they touched. As a "Faith, Fantasy, and Fiction" blog, we cover topics like children’s literature, apologetics and philosophy, myths and mythology, fantasy, theology, cultural critique, art and writing. This blog includes my thoughts as I read through Lewis and Tolkien and reflect on my own life and culture. In this sense, I am a Pilgrim in Narnia--or Middle Earth, or Fairyland. I am often peeking inside of wardrobes, looking for magic bricks in urban alleys, or rooting through yard sale boxes for old rings. If something here captures your imagination, leave a comment, “like” a post, share with your friends, or sign up to receive Narnian Pilgrim posts in your email box. Brenton Dickieson is a father, husband, friend, university lecturer, and freelance writer from Prince Edward Island, Canada. You can follow him on Twitter, @BrentonDana.
