About
Living Faith is a Christian blog that interacts with a variety of biblical, theological and practical topics written by Grand Canyon University's College of Theology faculty and specially invited guests of the college. Our content provides practical and biblical advice from a Christian worldview for living our faith in the midst of an increasingly secularized world. In addition, our content wrestles with cultural topics and issues that challenge how we live out our faith as believers. For this reason, contributors to our Christian blog strive to write with compassion and apologetic concern to honor Christ and edify the church in every way possible.

In conclusion to the Top Theology Books for Seminarians series, I wish to remind the reader that seminary is the time and place in which we devote ourselves to developing the skills for a lifetime of learning.

The season of spiritual discipleship, growth and learning that takes place during the seminary years is meant to be deep and broad, but not exhaustive. If a student leaves seminary feeling like they have pretty much completed rather than just begun a lifelong quest to know God more deeply through a life of prayer, devotion and diligent study, then they will have completely missed the point of seminary.

Grand Canyon Theological Seminary (GCTS) is an evangelical institution within an interdenominational university, which affords students a unique opportunity to study in a context shaped by Christian unity and denominational diversity.

I began working as a youth director while still in college and enjoyed it. My college offered a master’s degree in youth ministry so I decided to complete this as well.

As the standard degree for ordained professional ministry, the Master of Divinity (MDiv) is designed to train students who are called to serve in local churches, Christian organizations and other ministerial settings.

Because the MDiv is a pastorally oriented degree, one of the primary objectives is to train competent expositors and teachers of the Scriptures. Thus, the biblical languages are an important component of any MDiv program.

This preparation will require attention to the academic, spiritual and professional aspects of ministerial training. This will also require careful attention to one’s life and doctrine during what may be a lengthy season of preparation.
