Theology of Culture

The Rev. Dr. Hans Boersma

MS 718/818
Residential Weekends: Sept. 16–17, Oct. 28–29, Nov. 18–19, and Dec. 9–10
Course Dates: Sept. 6 – Dec. 16
Mode: In-person
Tuition: $1650 (Credit) / $550 (Audit)

With the disappearance of the plausibility structures of a Christian culture in the modern and late modern Western world, Christians face anew the perennial question of the relationship between the church and her surrounding culture. How is it that the position of the church has changed so drastically over the past several centuries? In what sense can and ought we to speak of the church providing a distinctive culture? How should Christians take their place among the cacophony of voices in contemporary society? In this course we will study past and contemporary theological models to study these and other questions. In so doing, we will analyze the various theological issues that are at stake and develop a distinctly ecclesial approach to the theology of culture.

Introduction to Christian Spirituality

The Rev. Dr. Greg Peters

AT 501H
Course Dates: Sept. 1 – Dec. 16, 2022
Residential Week: Nov. 7-11
Mode: In-person
Tuition: $1650 (Credit) / $550 (Audit)

The first of two courses that together provide a comprehensive introduction to ascetical theology including an overview of the general literature of Christian spirituality and its historical development. AT 501 concerns the individual’s spiritual life and surveys the spiritual literature of the first fourteen Christian centuries. The course has a dual focus on the academic basis of the Church’s spiritual tradition and the student’s experiential appropriation of that tradition, and so the course contains elements meant not only to foster in participants an intellectus fidei (a faithful understanding), but also to assist in developing a habitus fidei (a faithful character) that is embodied in a personalized praxis fidei (a faithful practice).

New Testament Survey: Gospels

The Rev. Shane Gormley

NT 511H
Course Dates: Sept. 1 – Dec. 16, 2022
Residential Week: Nov. 7-11
Mode: In-person
Tuition: $1650 (Credit) / $550 (Audit)

The first course in the writings of the New Testament surveys the historical, religious, and social world of the New Testament, and introduces various critical and literary-theological methods for the study of the New Testament in general. The Gospels are then surveyed in terms of content, literary structure, critical issues, and theological emphasis. The underlying aim is to gain an understanding of the four unique portraits of Jesus provided in the canonical Gospels. The course also examines the development of the Christology of the New Testament and the modern debates about and constructs of a Historical Jesus as opposed to the Real Jesus of the four canonical portraits.
