Do you know what you believe?
Ever wonder what it means when people say that God is three and God is one? Or do you find it fascinating just how the Bible is God's word and penned by humans at the same time? Join us as we wrestle intellectually with the mystery of God.
Religion at Calvin is all about discussing both historical and timely questions related to the Bible and faith. You'll study the doctrine of the incarnation, the prophets' call for justice and different branches of Buddhism—all from a Reformed Christian perspective—to become a well-rounded and informed scholar capable of tackling religion's toughest questions.
