In this course we analyze, engage, and evaluate critically the historical development, every day practices, diverse traditions, and common baseline of prophetic pastoral theology in the city. This course explores and reflects upon the rich history of prophetic pastoral ministry birthed in urban/inner city centers throughout the United States. In this course we examine how historical, cultural, and religious context is a catalyst and seedbed for prophetic ministry in the city. We focus and highlight the significance of “the underside of history” to better understand and continue the legacy of such “historical projects” in our past, present, and future gospel mission in the city and beyond.
