January Term 2018 Offerings

Biblical and Theological Foundations for Mission (APPL 515 / BIBL 515)
Mark Glanville

Wed Jan 3–Sat Jan 6, 1:30–5:30 pm
1 or 2 credits

Many contemporary ‘missional church’ discussions have led either to creative practices without deep theological roots or to rigorous theology that lacks freedom to experiment with missional practices. This course will unfold a missional reading of Scripture that inspires deeply-rooted, creative leadership. We will trace the missional arc of Scripture and bring alive the original missional contexts in the biblical law, prophets, wisdom literature, gospels, and Pauline epistles. Using this exegetical approach, we will trace the contours of a missional theology, examining how this lens enlivens our doctrines of God, the Spirit, and the church. Through workshops and discussion we will imagine a fresh missional ecclesiology. We will ask how the missional core of the biblical narrative informs the church’s cultural engagement—locally, globally, personally, and structurally—and what practices can form and sustain the deep engagement of a missional community.

Paul's Gospel of Peace: Soundings in the Letter to the Romans (BIBL 557)
Paul Spilsbury

Wed Jan 3–Sat Jan 6, 8:30 am–12:30 pm
1 or 2 credits

In a world often scarred by alienation and strife, the Apostle Paul spoke a message of peace: peace with God, and peace with one another. This course will engage with Paul’s creative and powerful thought by looking at key passages and themes within his most influential letter. In this letter the apostle exposes the roots of the human dilemma and reveals the path to a restored relationship with God and with our fellow human beings. The course will also invite reflection on the profound relevance of Paul’s insights for a flourishing life of faith today. Read more.

The World as Word: The Poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins (INDS 539)
Loren Wilkinson

Wed Jan 3–Sat Jan 6, 1:30–5:30 pm
1 credit

Though his slim body of work was unknown during his lifetime and continues to present great challenges to contemporary readers, today Gerard Manley Hopkins is universally acknowledged as one of the greatest of English poets. He is a great resource for—and a challenge to—Christian readers, for his powerful poetry is inseparable from a carefully thought-out theology that takes very seriously the implications of the often-neglected foundational Biblical teaching on the close connection between Christ and Creation. This intensive course will survey all of Hopkins’s major poetic works in the context provided by his journals, sermons, and devotional writings. Read more.

Business Ethics (INDS 5-- / APPL 5--)
Alec Hill

Wed Jan 3–Sat Jan 6, 8:30 am–12:30 pm
1 credit

Utilizing Alec Hill’s book Just Business: Christian Ethics in the Marketplace, this course will focus on a variety of ethical topics such as marketing, agency, discrimination, informed consent, privacy, concealment, property, environment, and international business. It is premised on the notion that all human conduct—including that in the marketplace—should emulate the holy-just-loving character of God.
