TMST 7108 Contextual Theologies:Faith, Praxis,and Culture in Dialogue (Spring: 3 )
For the past half century theological reflection has been uniquely enriched by the particular contributions of U.S. Hispanic, Asian-American, and African-American Catholic theologians. Their voices successfully address major traditional questions that have driven Christian theological thought (e.g., God, Jesus, Church) in light of their particular socio-cultural circumstances and the lived experience of their communities. This course introduces students to an intercultural conversation among scholars from these three groups (who together constitute the majority of Catholics in the U.S.) on key theological questions while envisioning practical implications of their theologies for the life of the Church and its educating in faith.
