The following course is taught by Father Kirby:

Introduction to Sacred Theology

In the Catholic intellectual tradition, sacred theology pursued as an academic discipline involves "faith seeking understanding". To acquire this understanding, one must prayerfully immerse himself or herself in what Augustine calls the sciential fade, "the science of faith". As an introduction to this discipline, this course provides an overview of both the contemplative and practical areas of theological inquiry. Students will obtain familiarity with all of the special fields of theology and how they integrate together into a unified whole. For more information please visit here. Below is lesson 2 from the course.
