Job Book Study (2B4222)Credits:2
The book of Job pursues the question of the quality of a person’s faith in God in the midst of a life of joy and suffering that a person cannot truly understand. Can God truly be trusted to govern a world marked by undeserved suffering and pain? Or is God to be trusted only in times of joy and blessing?

Capstone Thesis (2P2450)Credits:4
A 4 credit-hour option for the Master of Biblical Studies and would replace the Capstone Research Project requirement. Though designed specifically for students in the MBS degree, a student enrolled in any master's degree program [MDiv, MCMin, MCS] who has completed the required courses for the Capstone Thesis is eligible to enroll in Capstone Thesis at the end of their program. However, preference will be given to MBS students. Capstone Thesis must be completed in the final semester(s) of a student's program after a mid-program review. Being a "master's thesis," the required research, critical thinking, and writing would be much more extensive than the Capstone Research Project. The purpose of the thesis is to demonstrate competency in Bible interpretation and critical thought. * Contact Registrar for application form
