Aim of the Course
For theological thinking to avoid superficiality, it is important to have both a solid understanding of the modern world that stimulates our thinking and a serious grasp of theological themes. An ability to think with precision and creativity is also vital. These skills and bodies of knowledge can lead to deep insights and also help us to avoid pitfalls and dead ends as we do our own theological thinking.
This course aims to teach theological thinking by doing a lot of it. In particular, the class is designed to place the specific experiences of participants in conversation with each other and with the wisdom of the authors of our readings. The result should be a thought-provoking, exploratory process that helps us become more effective theological thinkers.
