Full course description

6-Week Course


What does it mean to live a life of faith? How can we be faithful followers of Jesus today? Guided by Thomas Stegman S.J.’s book Opening the Door of Faith, this course explores a rich Scriptural understanding of faith and discipleship by exploring Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and Paul. To help us engage with the Scriptural texts, each week there is video commentary by a guest scholar.

This course has a required text: Thomas D. Stegman, S.J. Opening the Doors of Faith: Encountering Jesus and His Call to Discipleship. Paulist Press, 2015.
