TMST 7065 Disputed Questions in Contemporary Theology (Spring: 3 )


Course Description

An introduction to contested issues in contemporary Christian theology, such as the role of biblical criticism, the relationship between science and faith, the encounter with world religions, theories of atonement, divine impassibility, and the possibility of faith in a consumer culture. The goals of this course are: (1) to map out the basic elements of each problematic area, (2) to register some popular yet unsatisfactory answers (e.g. creationism and reductionism as responses to the question of science and faith), and (3) to consider more authentic and theologically persuasive responses.
