This course interprets theological positions in contemporary Christian theology. The course aims to develop both familiarity and facility with theological discourse in postmodern, contextual, liberationist, and constructivist theologians. The texts studied address theological language and method, and the doctrines of scripture, God, Trinity, Christ, Holy Spirit, creation, providence, the human person, sin, salvation, the church, and the last things. The course examines the ramifications of contrasting theologies while giving consideration to how socio-political context informs theological thinking.
