THEO3710: Church, Culture, and Christian Living

Class Program
Credits 3

This course focuses on the relationship of Christian faith to culture. In the past, Christians have tended to think about the need to be prepared to have various responses (a la Niebuhr) to "culture". This course will offer an additional alternative to students: the church as culture and Christians as culture makers. So, although the course will give students ways to further discern the nature of the surrounding culture(s), the course will also focus on participating in the divine, co-creational command to "fill the earth" with God-glorifying culture. The course will also help them think about their future as God-honoring culture makers.
