Christian Theology in a Pluralistic Context

Designation: THEO 7113

This course focuses on the nature of pluralism in Western culture, in its philosophical, religious, and cultural forms. Through an examination of the nature of truth-claims, the concept of worldview, and shared cultural assumptions, students consider some of the potential and challenges of expressing Christian faith in contemporary Western and global context. They consider how to interact with and respond theologically to other religious traditions. Students explore the contours of relating faith and culture, including the impact of culture on theology, and potential for religious expression in the public square.
