Christian Faith and Technology - Dr. Thomas Price

This course is an introduction to moral theology and its assessment of the spiritual, intellectual, and ethical implications of advanced technology on our lives. We will note many of the positive benefits of advanced technology while engaging key challenges of it to our lives, culture, and faith. In this course, we will become familiar with Christian moral theology and its rich substance for engaging such advances. Further, we will delve into such challenging topics as Big Tech, Tyranny, and Truth Suppression; Social Media, Popular Culture, and Human Relationships; Family Relations, Children, and Internet; Transhumanism, Transgenderism, and Medical Manipulation of our Created Natures; Propaganda, Politics, and the Gospel, and many other related themes.  The aim of the course is to theologically assess the spiritual and moral impact of such advances and cultivate a Christian reply drawing upon the riches of the biblical theological vision. 

Required Books:
Holy Scripture
John Fesko, The Christian and Technology, Evangelical Press, 2020.
Jacob Shatzer, Transhumanism and the Image of God, IVP.

Readings and weekly discussion topics to follow.

Life is Hardy Har Hard: A Comedy Workshop for Christians

Life on Earth is not for sissies. Every day presents you with trials and tribulations that can rob your joy and make laughter impossible. But that’s not how it’s supposed to be for Christians.

As heirs to the Kingdom of God, Christians ought to be jolly folks. This 7 week course is jam-packed with practical information for how to sharpen your sense of humor and find funny, even in tragedy.

Laughter is a learned behavior and with over 30-years of comedy experience, I can teach you how to do it. The course contains information that will help you:

  • Speak more effectively.
  • Encourage others when they suffer.
  • Overcome depression.
  • Stand up to bullies.
  • Brainstorm zillions of ideas whenever you feel like it.
  • Laugh more often.

Comedy is a weapon for destroying suffering. Learn to wield that weapon like a pro. It will make your whole life better!

(This course is fun too.)

Course Details

Course meets twice a week live on Zoom for 1 hour per class (5pm PAC time/8pm EST on Tuesday and Friday) for 7 weeks. 

First class will be July 13th. Final class will be August 27. (There will be no class August 20th.)

Each session will be a mixture of lecture and activities. Sessions are highly interactive. Students are expected to participate, not merely audit!
