Modern Christian Thought|
Fall 2017 not offered
|Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory|
|Course Cluster: Christianity Studies|
This course will provide an introduction to the field of Christian thought by exploring the relationship between conceptions of God and conceptions of selfhood, from St. Augustine through mystical liberation, black, feminist, womanist, evangelical, process, and eco-theologies. How do the ways people think about God reflect, support, or interrupt the ways they think about the human subject? And what sorts of ethics, communities, and political decisions do these models underwrite?
