Abstract: This course of study is concerned with the exploration of contemporary theological and moral-ethical issues. The intent is to assist student scholars to develop skills in theological reflection. Through exposure to issues such as God, humanity, sin and evil, the good, Jesus Christ, the church, the moral life, and the future, etc., the student scholar will be able to explore and test various theories and approaches to theological reflection. The course will NOT attempt to provide a survey of the broad history and traditions of theological and ethical formulation. Rather, the course will introduce pertinent theological issues for scholarly reflection and discussion through exposure to a variety of selected texts from both prose and biblical literature. Finally, student scholars will be encouraged to develop greater appreciation for the importance of serious and sustained theological reflection on complex contemporary issues. In this way, the course aims to assist student scholars to articulate with greater clarity WHAT they believe about a particular theological issue and WHY they believe as they do.
