FROM THE TEACHER

Genesis 1:1 states “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth…” Look around you. See how well ordered and logical His creation is! By studying the field of logic we can begin to appreciate God’s creation from the vantage point of its beauty in logic.

Think a minute…

What if nature was not well structured and logical? What if we here on earth or even the universe were not governed by a logical set of laws (like the laws of physics)? What would life be like?>

Some days life may seem to be out of control, but if we take time to stop, listen, and look closer, we can see God’s perfect structure working logically all around us. Come join us in NorthStar’s Logic class as we study the field of logic and its application to forming sound reasons and arguments.

If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.

Student Feedback

I enjoyed the biblical group discussions. I found these to be some of the most challenging assignments, but they really made me think not only about logic but about what I believe as well. I also enjoyed the teacher and the overall subject matter of logic.

This was a lot of fun.

I was able to learn a lot of things through the course material. There were times for testing how I could apply the logical skills I was developing and I believe to have done well on them because of this class.
