Christianity Among the World's Religions
THEO 270 - Christianity Among the World’s Religions3 hours While some attention will be paid to diversity within the Christian tradition, the major focus of this course will be on Christianity’s response to and interaction with the other religions. Christianity’s evangelical world mission will be explored, in terms of its emergence, historical development, and evolving rationale. Christianity’s more recent emphasis on interreligious dialogue and cooperative action will also be explored, again in terms of both theoretical foundations and practical implementations. Are these twin concerns—mission and dialogue—contradictory or complementary? What does the future hold for Christian identity amid religious diversity?This course will satisfy the theology core area requirement.
