    INDS 589

    Thinking Theologically about Culture

    This course is also offered as THEO 589

    Questions about Christian cultural engagement—in the arts, politics, work, and play—pose significant challenges for present-day believers. And with an increasingly global awareness, the older “Christ and culture” arguments also focus these days on “Christ and the cultures.” We will examine biblical and theological resources for understanding the place of cultural renewal in God’s plan for creation, with special attention to Anabaptist and Reformed perspectives.

    Gaining the Whole World: The Ambiguous Success of American Evangelicalism

    Evangelicalism has been the most successful and resilient modern form of Christianity by denouncing some dimensions of modernity while almost uncritically embracing others. This course addresses the question of whether American evangelicals have typically picked the right combinations of what to critique or embrace.
