E-learning with NETS
Wed, 01 Jan 2014

NETS is excited to be launching the following courses in blended format as of January 2014:

  • Study Skills
  • Biblical Theology
  • Old Testament
  • Christian Ministry Internship 1

This means additional pedagogical advantages for our residential students and external students alike. It will be especially helpful for our external students, because it will afford them with as much engagement with the material as is possible for those not physically on the campus. More »

Our learning management system, ITSlearning, is being used by hundreds of schools and tertiary institutions worldwide. This includes many theological colleges in the developing world. Students from 3 of our programmes will be able to benefit from this, namely those in the Certificate in Theology and Certificate in Applied Christian Ministry programmes, as well as students in our new honours programme.

Please contact us for more information, and sign up for one of these programmes to benefit from this exciting venture! » Less

'Priority One - A True Understanding of God's Grace in our Lives' by Josh Hooker

'Priority One - A True Understanding of God's Grace in our Lives' by Josh Hooker

This book by NETS Vice-Principal Josh Hooker is now available and can be ordered from any bookshop or internet book supplier. Find out more about its content here: More »

Description

Many today seem to promote a type of Christianity that has little room for teaching the Bible. However if we want to use the label 'Christian' of ourselves with any real integrity then we need to be Bible people. Sadly, we live at a time when many Christians have little knowledge of the Bible. We can quickly tell others the position of our football team in the league, or the latest story-line in our favourite TV soap, but if we were asked a basic question about biblical history or theology we would not be able to answer it. Many Christians do not know whether Daniel came before or after Joshua in Old Testament history, or what the New Testament means by 'justification'.

This book is written primarily for those who have been Christians for a while but still only vaguely understand the Bible's teaching on grace. If you want a fuller understanding of what Christ has done for you at the cross, or if you want to work out the implications of God's grace for your life today, read this book. It spells out the priority of grace in our Christian lives and how a firm understanding of the gospel can transform us.

Commendation

"The title of this short book is exactly right. There is no more important priority in the Christian life (in all of life, indeed) than the grace of God, the creator and redeemer of the universe. We need to seek God's grace not just at the moment of conviction and conversion, but every moment ever after. Unfortunately the church easily generates a culture of pretence or denial. There is an unholy paradox that in order to become a Christian and belong to the church the first thing you have to do is admit you're a failure in need of God's mercy and grace, but in order to "sustain your membership" as a respected member of the church, the last thing you should ever do is admit you're a failure. So we struggle on with inner guilt and shame, while our outward lives either stiffen with righteous rules or slacken with casual worldliness. Josh Hooker's book points a better way - indeed the only way: not only to start with the cross but to go on daily living in the power of the cross and the resurrection life that follows. Josh Hooker's book is thoroughly biblical in its approach, practical in application, rich in lively illustration, and full of encouragement and challenge in equal measure. As one of Josh's former teachers at All Nations Christian College, it is a joy to recommend this book." - Christopher J. H. Wright, Langham Partnership
