Many of our readers are already familiar with The Silo Project. Essentially, we’ve taken material from our college classrooms and are offering it to normal people (i.e., non-scholars, non-theology-nerds) in an attractive, affordable, self-paced format. You can learn about worldview or Old Testament or counseling or whatever at your own pace through watching a series of five-minute videos featuring professors from Eternity Bible College.
I’ll admit that I don’t know you (unless I do). But that little detail aside, I firmly believe The Silo Project is perfect for you. Why? Here are a five reasons.
You Want to Learn & Grow
You love Jesus and want to serve him in every area of your life. But like everyone, there are parts of the Bible you don’t understand. There are current issues that you know God cares about, but you’re not entirely sure what he would say about them. There are people in your life who need help and support, but you always feel a little inadequate.
Silo courses can help you in all of these areas—they’re designed to inform, equip, and challenge you.
You Don’t Have Spare Time
You already have too many commitments. I can see that. You have a well-intentioned booklist that you’re not likely to put a dent in for years to come. You’ve come across ministry and training opportunities, but they all require commitments that would stretch your fragile schedule beyond the breaking point.
Silo courses can be started, stopped, and paused at any time. You can move through the courses at your own pace, even if you have nothing more than five-minute gaps in your schedule.
You Hate Theological Jargon
In the past, you’ve taken steps to learn more about your Bible and how to help other people, but you quickly drowned in a sea of difficult concepts and terminology. Let’s be honest: terms like “sanctification,” “exegesis,” “Abrahamic,” and a thousand others refer to important concepts, but they make learning the Bible unnecessarily difficult when they’re simply assumed rather than explained.
Silo courses explore and explain each of these concepts without appealing to obscure terminology.
You’ve been keeping your eye open for opportunities to learn, but everything you’ve come across has either been too academic, too lightweight, too time-consuming, too cheesy, too something. It’s not that you don’t want to take the next step, you just haven’t found the perfect fit.
Well get ready, Cinderella, because this slipper was designed for your foot. Silo courses are not re-purposed videos of hours-long classroom lectures. They’re designed to help normal people learn the way normal people learn.
You’ve Been Waiting for a Discount
I also happen to know that you’re a savvy money-manager. You already sense that taking a Silo course at the standard price of $25 ($20 if you sign up with a group of five or more) is an insane deal. But if only you could get another $4 or $5 off, you’d have no choice but to sign up.
Well, here you go. Choose any course you like and enter the coupon code theologyforreallife as you register and you’ll get 20% off (offer expires Nov. 1). I should also mention that you can watch the first two sessions of any course for free.
Now that I’ve convinced you, head over to thesiloproject.org and get started with a course in studying the Bible effectively, worldview, Old Testament, New Testament, counseling, discipleship, or theology.
