Bite-Sized Theology

Systematic Theology can be daunting. Often times the lay person, who desires to serve the Lord, feels he or she is not well enough educated to confidently discuss topics such as the atonement, ecclesiology, or eschatology.

The Engaging The Mind Podcast seeks to  simplify some of the academic rigor of Systematic Theology. Look for new episodes every week.

The Engaging The Mind Journal seeks to offer a catalogue of articles which cover a broad swath of Christian life. Look for new articles every week.

The Engaging The Mind Conversation is a video series that seeks to answer questions by looking in on a discussion between believers. You can learn what the Bible says about some of the more challenging topics in the faith.
