Course Description: This is an introductory course relating method to practice in theology. This course will involve an examination of different ways in which the Christian tradition has understood the sources, norms, and criteria for the development of church doctrine. Special attention is given to a critical analysis of contemporary theological methods and the influence of postmodern science. The connection between theological method and Christian doctrine, especially the doctrine of divine revelation, will serve as the center point for developing an Evangelical/Wesleyan theology in the postmodern world. This class is designed for beginning students, and serves as preparatory study for all course offerings in theology.
