Available Learning Pathways

These Online Learning Materials were initially prepared for seminarians enrolled in courses at New Brunswick Theological Seminary. “Thoughtful Lives” was used by those registered for NT520: Wrestling with Paul. The Sociology, Urban Life, and Corinthians materials were part of the course BH526: Urban Christians: Then & Now. “Welcome to the New Testament” provided material for students registered in “NT510: Introduction to the New Testament.” I am currently working to “update” the online material for use/purchase by visitors to this website.

Here’s the Introductory Video for the Thoughtful Lives  course, below.
I’m including it here since in this video I introduce the pedagogy employed,
not just in Thoughtful Lives, but in all of this online material.
