Our newest pre-pub is:

TH200 Christian Thought: Orthodoxy and Heresy

In her approachable and relatable teaching style, Dr. Beth Felker Jones explains major doctrines and heresies of the Christian faith. She describes the concepts of divine revelation, the Trinity, the fall, salvation, grace and free will, and the differences between Calvinism and Arminianism. You’ll gain a basic understanding of pneumatology (the study of the Holy Spirit), ecclesiology (the study of the Church), eschatology (the study of end times), and the many related heresies. Additionally, you’ll learn to harmonize Scripture, tradition, experience, and reason in understanding and forming your own theology.

This is a rumination, so I'm not really expecting you to answer, Celeste...unless you want to, of course.

What happened to offering the mEd courses on CP? Was the Worthington course of John which closed at $41 too successful? Bob himself helped target that price when the community seemed content to let it close around $90. I think many people were hoping that method of setting a price would continue.

SineNomine:

How "ecumenical" is this course?

While I have no inside knowledge on this, it seems to be that this course somewhat tracks along the author's book "Practicing Christian Doctrine"  (currently looked in a bundle on its way through PrePub). Baker Publishing has the intro and first chapter as pdf on their website, where you can learn a bit of her approach to "ecumenical" - while she doesn't use the moniker "small-c catholic" there (though the description leads a bit into that direction) and of course identifies with "evangelical" as well, I'd say: in relation to the average fare selling here on Logos - very much so.

But to let her speak for herself, here a screenshot from my kindle cloud reader (sorry, no soup, no copy&paste from that):

Her treatment of scripture, canon and the deuterocanonicals seems very balanced for an evangelical:
