In The Method of Theological Study, Johann Gerhard (1582–1637) sets forth the aims and topics of theological study which form a five year educational program for the preparation of Candidates for the Office of the Holy Ministry. In the words of Gerhard, “Speaking concisely and by way of outline, the study of theology is the remedy for our innate ignorance of spiritual matters and for the inherent disorder in our emotions; the stronghold for the cultivation of holiness and piety; the means for listening to God daily in the Word and for speaking to God daily in prayers; and, finally, a sort of prelude to that most holy and blessed society which we await in heaven.”
