An Update on MasterLectures: New Videos, Apps, and More
A few months ago, we released MasterLectures, a video streaming service offering thousands of thought-provoking video lectures from the world’s leading Christian scholars.
Since then, we’ve been releasing lots of updates and adding new content. If you haven’t subscribed yet, then here’s a roundup of everything you’ve been missing, plus a sneak peek at a few projects releasing soon.
8 New Video Lecture Series
MasterLectures gives you unlimited access to an always-expanding video library. Here are a few of the video lectures we’ve added to MasterLectures in recent weeks:
- What Christians Ought to Believe, taught by Michael F. Bird
Bringing together theological commentary, tips for application, and memorable illustrations, What Christians Ought to Believe summarizes the basic tenets of the Christian faith using the Apostles' Creed as the entryway.
- Creation Care: A Biblical Theology of the Natural World, taught by father-and-son team, Douglas and Jonathan Moo
Filmed on location in beautiful northern Michigan, this series invites you to explore the place of the natural world within God's purposes and to celebrate God's love as displayed in creation and new creation.
- Cultural Apologetics, taught by Paul M. Gould
The Cultural Apologetics series introduces you to a model of cultural engagement, rooted in Paul's speech on Mars Hill, which details practical steps for re-establishing the Christian voice, conscience, and imagination. The result is that Christianity will be seen as both plausible and desirable by those within modern Western culture, preparing the way, with the help of the Holy Spirit, for a genuine missionary encounter between the gospel and the contemporary world.
- Evangelical Theology: A Biblical and Systematic Introduction, taught by Michael F. Bird
Featuring 45 in-depth lectures, the Evangelical Theology series presents systematic theology from the unique perspective of a biblical scholar.
- Jonah, taught by Kevin J. Youngblood
This series on Jonah brings to light the universal scope of God's sovereignty and mercy. Each lecture surveys the main idea of each passage in Jonah, its literary context, its structure and literary form, and its meaning, alongside its canonical and practical significance for us today.
- God’s Glory Alone, taught by David VanDrunen
In the God's Glory Alone series, renowned scholar David VanDrunen teaches through the historical and biblical roots of the idea that all glory belongs to God alone. Lessons examine the development of this theme in the Reformation, in subsequent Reformed theology and confessions, and in contemporary theologians who continue to be inspired by the conviction that all glory belongs to God.
- 1 Peter, taught by Dennis R. Edwards
This series features scholar and pastor Dennis R. Edwards teaching through the book of 1 Peter in 17 engaging and challenging lessons.
- Theology in the Context of World Christianity, taught by Timothy C. Tennent
Global research is clear: The center of Christianity has shifted from the West to the global South and East. What does this mean for theology? Is the Christian faith not only culturally translatable, but also theologically translatable? In the Theology in the Context of World Christianity series, author Timothy C. Tennent answers this question with a resounding yes. This series presents a unique way for you to learn traditional theological concepts, while in conversation with theologians across the globe.
