In this course, students explore the relationship between thinking theologically and reading the Bible well. We consider what theological ideas are central to the biblical witness, and how they help us interpret the Bible as a whole. We also examine when and how our reading of Scripture challenges us to think differently about who God is, and who God is calling us to be in this world.
Admissions application must be made prior to November 3, 2017.
This course is being taught Winter 2018 term.
