I started this book just before I was accepted into the ThD program and, of course, it was used quite frequently in that research. But, I never actually finished reading it until a week ago, so I figured it was high time I write up a review on it, especially since it is part of my DTS Angelology course I recently finished.

This book as well as the course are part of my Unschooled Master of Theology Program. You can check all of my assignments for the program here.

In actuality, especially now that I’ve had a minute to review the notes I took, I have to say this book contains a wealth of information and covers a wide area of research.

So, let’s jump in because there is a lot to cover in this review….

This paper is an assignment for the Angelology, Anthropology, and Hamartiology Course at DTS which is part of my Unschooled Master’s of Theology Program. The assignment is to write a doctrinal statement covering the major subject matter of the course, with details outlined in the syllabus.

I just finished another course at the Koinonia Institute and, so far, I’m finding the topical courses are not nearly as good as the systematic, contextual reviews of the biblical text by Missler himself.

This course was a two lecture briefing, but it was really odd how it’s title about Demons, and specifically 1 Timothy 4:1 where Paul states, “In latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons.” But, throughout the course, there is actually little to no mention of demons!

I guess we can chock it up to lesson learned. It is a personal goal to complete all KI courses (at least those on my personalized Study Plan for my uThM Program).

So, let’s go through the Discussion Questions despite the glaring absence of the actual topic in question….

This week I finished the Doctrines of Demons course by KI and figured I’d write up a review on it since it’s part of my Unschooled Master of Theology Program. While you’re at it, you can also check out my other assignments here.

I have to say, so far I’ve been pretty disappointed with the quality of most online courses I’ve undertaken so far. I’m starting to wonder if the overall quality for courses these days is just really poor, or if maybe it’s the choices of topics I make in designing my uThM program in the first place.

I guess it’s a matter of really digging in and honing my research questions, struggling through the process of determining what it is I’m really trying to solve, all the while, focusing and refocusing my efforts (and course materials) until I strike a vein of gold and can mine for answers successfully.

This course, as the title describes, is supposed to be about “doctrines of demons.” Sadly, this is not what I discovered as I went through the lectures.

Interested? Let’s find out…
