What is Systematic Theology? | Ep. 7

Since we all have thoughts about God, we are all – to some extent – thinking theologically. As RC Sproul famously said, “The issue for Christians is not whether we are going to be theologians but whether we are going to be good theologians or bad ones.”

On this episode of the Reasonable Theology podcast, our guest Dr. Scott Swain provides guidance on how we can strive to be good theologians.

Listen in as Dr. Swain:

  • Helpfully defines systematic theology
  • Provides a number of resources to aid our study
  • Points out some guardrails we should have in place to avoid being bad theologians
  • Weighs in on whether Star Wars: Episode 9 can recover from the disaster that was The Last Jedi
