Class Description

On October 19, 2015, the British Government issued a report that recommended mosques be closed by the state to avoid them becoming dissemination points of radicalizing messages. This was done in the name of keeping Britain’s “multi-racial, multi-faith democracy” safe. In a day when major nation states propose regulating the religious messages their citizens are exposed to in the name of public safety, it becomes essential to demarcate the differences between evangelism and radicalization.

The Intersection program incorporates lectures by and reflection with the distinguished faculty and guests of Garrett-Evangelical. Over the course of the academic year, faculty members present lectures to the seminary community and public on topics ranging from theology, biblical interpretation, church history, and the church in society. By completing a three-step CEU Lecture Program, individuals can earn 0.5 (half) Continuing Education Units for each lecture and associated activity. This three-step process is as follows:
• Watch the recorded presentation online
• Complete an assigned reading
• Write a reflective paper, which will be reviewed by a Garrett-Evangelical faculty member
