Course Catalogue

Theology After Google will focus on theological method, communication and constructive possibilities after Google. Just like the Holocaust or the Printing Press reshaped theology — especially public theology — the seminar will challenge students take our flat and connected world seriously as both a space and place for theological reflection.

The Church and Culture will explore the emergence of new cultural forms of religion and spirituality post-Christendom and after the end of the secularization thesis. The class will consist of three sections, theoretical accounts of Western culture, critical theories of culture, and contemporary ecclesiologies.

Digital Space and the Public Theologian will first engage theories of communication, digital anthropology, movement building, and emerging trends in discourse in the public square. Then attention will turn to the unique possibilities for those Christian leaders seeking to develop a public voice today.

Science and Religion will focus on the scientific story of the cosmos, the patterns and principles of emergence, and the accounts of religion, meaning, and humanity within the sciences. Focus will be on the questions raised by both natural history and human history, along with the way these stories impact human self-understanding.
