What difference does theological study make? Is theology practical? In this edition of the Mobile Ed podcast, Dr. Carl Sanders and Dr. Michael Heiser discuss these questions and more. Dr. Sanders was in Bellingham last week filming his second round of courses for Logos Mobile Ed. See more of his courses, available now as part of the Bible and Doctrine Foundations Bundle (9 courses).
Johnny Cisneros, Director of Curriculum and Instructional Design, is the creator of Logos Mobile Education. He earned a Master of Christian Studies degree in Biblical Languages from Regent College in Vancouver, BC. He is currently working on a PhD in E-Research and Technology Enhanced Learning.
Dr. Carl Sanders is an associate professor of theology at Lancaster Bible College’s Capital Bible Seminary. He has taught at college and seminary levels since 1999 at several schools: Bethel University (St. Paul, Minnesota), Northwestern College (St. Paul, Minnesota), and Washington Bible College in Washington, DC, where he also served as chair of the Bible and Theology Department (2003–2012).
Dr. Sanders is well-liked by his students for his down-to-earth presentation of Bible doctrine. Students soon learn that he enjoys talking about theology and has a quick wit. Among his strengths as a lecturer are his ability to distill information to essential elements and his good-natured way of fairly explaining differences in theological positions. Dr. Sanders has a keen interest in urban ministry and has served for many years in racially diverse urban congregations. His interest in local church experience helps him practice theology in ways that reflect the diversity present in the body of Christ. He strives to make theology interesting and practical.
Dr. Michael Heiser is a Scholar-in-Residence for Faithlife Corporation, the makers of Logos Bible Software. He produces academic content and works with Logos Mobile Education. He does translation work in roughly a dozen ancient languages, including Biblical Hebrew, Greek, Aramaic, Egyptian gieroglyphs, and Ugaritic cuneiform. Dr. Heiser also specializes in Israelite religion (especially Israel’s divine council), Jewish binitarianism, textual criticism, Second Temple Judaism, and more. He maintains an active ministry to people whose worldview is molded by the occult, paranormal, or esoteric beliefs. As a Christian scholar, Dr. Heiser seeks to fill gaps where people have difficult-to-answer questions regarding difficult passages or experiences.
