TMST 8105 Discipleship and Prophetic Imagination (Fall: 3 )
This seminar is oriented by the following two questions: What does it mean to follow Jesus within the diverse contexts in which we find ourselves today? What currently informs our theological imaginations with regard to the challenges and exigencies of mission in 2014? Using the 2007 CELAM Document of Aparecida and the 2013 Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium as ecclesial points of reference in the contemporary study of discipleship and mission, the seminar will explore the biographies and writings of selected 20th and 21st century theologians who have reflected on these themes in the light of their own experiences of living out their own Christian vocations in the Church and the world.
Instructor(s): Margaret Guider, O.S.F.
