Dr. Crouse teaches in order to prepare ministers and lay Christians leaders for service to the triune God. In regard to systematic theology, his passion is connecting biblical interpretation with the historic legacy of Christian doctrine. The goal is to see the church renewed for its calling of worship and discipleship.  His interests are the theology of the Protestant Reformation, the history and theology of worship and the sacraments, and the relationship between the Old and New Testaments.

His research specialties include the philosophy of science, the nature of time and eternity, and the relationship between divine ordination and human and natural causation.

Jane Austen with Rebecca Manor | May | 15

Rebecca Manor loves story and art and remains in awe of their power to inspire a love of the good, the true, and the beautiful.  She brings her studies of literature and theology, the many places she’s called home, and a heart for homeschooling parents to the many teacher guides she has written for Beautiful Feet Books and strives to make teaching history, music, science, character, and literature accessible and joy-filled. Rebecca has served as an adjunct professor at Knox Theological Seminary in their Christian and Classical Studies program, of which she is an alum.

Charles Spurgeon with Dr. Sam Lamerson | May 22

Dr. Lamerson’s teaching philosophy can be summed up in a quotation from William Butler Yeats: “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” He hopes that his teaching will light a fire in students that will cause them to burn with desire to know more about God for the rest of their lives. He uniquely combines over 20 years of academic teaching with over 20 years of pastoral experience.

The Early Martyrs with Dr. Scott Manor | May 29

Dr. Manor believes in the importance of understanding how our Christian heritage informs our faith today, especially as it relates to the historical and theological developments of the early church. Just as Hebrews 11 encourages us to better understand how great men and women of faith throughout the Old Testament bear witness to the truth, the great legacy of Christian faith and God’s faithfulness to His Church continues from the time of the apostles to the present.  The primary focus of his research is on the relationship of textual authority to issues of orthodoxy and heresy in the early church. He has been published in various journals including Studia Patristica, Vigiliae Christianae, and The Expository Times.

Sometimes it’s called Calvinism.  Sometimes it’s called the Doctrines of Grace.  Reformed Theology is the system of theology that honors God and his Word by giving Him all the credit for salvation from beginning to end.  It’s a powerful and practical way for understanding the Christian life.

Join us as the Coral Ridge pastoral staff takes us step by step through the essentials of Reformed Theology.  You’ll be both humbled and overjoyed by God’s amazing grace.
