Class Description

This course will explore selected biblical themes, images, and figures and their relevance for pastoral care and counseling. The course will examine how the biblical narratives may be used to help reconstruct human narratives of suffering, despair, and brokenness for purposes of healing and transformation. A major concern is to engage the Bible through various exegetical approaches and issues in an interdisciplinary dialogue with pastoral care and counseling, with the goals of allowing insights from pastoral and counseling to enrich biblical interpretation and for biblical insights to inform pastoral care and counseling. Prerequisites: HB510, NT510, and PC500. 3 credit hours.
