Course Description: A study of the way local communities and cultural groups receive the Christian faith, apply its message to their life contexts and express its relevance through writings and traditions. The course will consider roles and methods of those who participate in contextualizing theology, including those who contribute from the outside. Areas of special focus will be: theological approaches and disciplinary rationales for doing contextual theology; models and criteria of contextual theologies; responding to multiple expressions of the Christian faith within the global church; and case studies in contextual theology.
