    The Whole Gospel: Mission Out of a Radical Evangelical Matrix

    This course engages students to explore the missiological articulation and practice generated from within what has come to be called “radical evangelicalism.” We will focus on the historical development and impact of this missiology since 1970, primarily in the Two-Thirds World. Special attention will be given to the contributions offered to the field out of the Latin American context and to current missiological challenges related to globalization, immigration, and ecological degradation.

    Taking Your Soul to Work: Experiencing God in the Marketplace

    This course is also offered as SPIR 560 (A) (Distance Education Option Available)

    This course will explore the integration of spirituality and work (business, trades, professions, volunteer service, and public service). In contrast with the dualistic approach (the upper level for the contemplative and the lower for the person engaging in a societal occupation) and the compartmentalization of Sunday from Monday, a fully biblical spiritual theology will be discovered as both applied and practical. The course will consider various approaches to integration, and the rich and diverse traditions of spirituality in the history of the people of God, especially the "mixed life." Further, issues raised in the workplace—work-life balance, success, ethics, failure, drivenness, ambition, and creativity—will be seen as opportunities to become a deeper person and to grow in faith, thus demonstrating that the journey inward and the journey outward are interdependent.

The Centre for Interdisciplinary Theological Studies in Latin America is organized around this holistic premise.

    Listening to Micah

    The Book of Micah opens with a thunderclap: “The word of the LORD.” God’s message “came” through Micah’s personality, spirit, language, and voice. Micah was also the Lord’s pen, guiding the Magi to Bethlehem. The book still speaks today. When the Library of Congress in Washington, DC was rebuilt in the late nineteenth century, prominent religious leaders chose Micah 6:8 as the motto for the carrel of religion. This course aims to open the student’s ear to the Lord’s message.

    Five Traditions & Practices of Prayer

    This course explores five traditions and practices of prayer from the history of the church: the short, frequent prayers of the Desert Fathers; the liturgical collect of the Gregorian Sacramentary and the Book of Common Prayer; the examen conscience among the Jesuits and the Puritans; the use of imagination in disciplined meditation (composition of place) in the seventeenth-century meditative devotion of the Jesuits, Francis de Sales, and the Puritans; and the Lord's Prayer as a pattern for personal prayer in Martin Luther and C.S. Lewis. Each day we will examine one of these practices, place it in historical context, and discuss a short classic text from the persons or period concerned. But just like one wants not just to study sheet music, but to play the music for oneself, we will take time together to practise these patterns of prayer during the week and on a guided, quiet retreat over the weekend at the conclusion of the week of classes.

    Note: This course includes a required prayer retreat for credit students that will take place Friday, July 11 to Sunday, July 13 in Sumas, Washington. The $195 cost of the retreat is in addition to the tuition costs of the course and includes accommodation for two nights and meals from breakfast Saturday to lunch on Sunday. The cost does not include transportation. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that he or she has the necessary documentation to enter the United States.

    How has the same Bible yielded so many different interpretations over the centuries, and are our modern interpretations any better? This course responds to such questions with an investigation of biblical interpretation from the first century to the present, with a focus on our modern era (since ca. 1800) and the New Testament. You will investigate leading thinkers and movements, the rise and fall of interpretative eras and approaches, and biblical interpretation as a phenomenon of world Christianity.

    How to Read Non-canonical Gospels

    Gospel-like texts outside the New Testament canon reveal the diverse religious imagery of the early church and its competitors. Aspects of this imaginative world also resonate with Western religious and cultural trends of the early twenty-first century, from Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code to newly discovered texts like The Gospel of Judas. Why did Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John become canonical? What makes some ancient non-canonical texts “apocryphal,” and why did some enjoy enormous popularity while others languished? Explore these questions in this course.

    Western music, in its “purest” form, is often thought to mean nothing other than itself; but, from Pythagoras to Wagner, the idea of music carries huge theological ramifications. This course teases out these meanings by looking at several changes in the history of Western music, particularly through the music of Monteverdi, Rameau, Beethoven and Wagner.

    Technology, Wilderness, and Creation

    This course will use an eight-day voyage in an open rowing/sailing boat in the Gulf Islands as an occasion to reflect prayerfully on the nature of place and pilgrimage in the Christian life and will draw especially on the writings of those many Christians whose own understanding of God has been focused by the experience of voyaging on the sea. No previous sailing/rowing experience is required. This course is offered in partnership with A Rocha Canada, with contributions from Rick Faw and Ruth Des Cotes; also contributing are Regent College professor, Rikk Watts, and his wife, Katie, as well as Erik Wikinson, sailing master.

    "Outstanding among the Apostles": The Role of Women in the Churches of Paul

    The ministry role of women in today's churches continues to be a hotly debated topic in many quarters, especially in evangelical circles. While much—if not most—of this debate is centered on the so-called restrictive passages in the Pauline letters of 1 Corinthians and 1 Timothy, this course will begin with an analysis of the actual role that women played in the Pauline churches as observed in all of the apostle's letters and in the book of Acts. In the conviction that Paul's theory and practice must in the end coincide, we will seek to articulate a unified Pauline vision on these important matters.

    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.

    The Place of Law in God's World

    Throughout history, God’s people have had every conceivable relationship to law. What do Scripture and Christian traditions teach about law? The focus of this course will be on civil or positive law with a spotlight on abortion, poverty, gay marriage, the environment, immigration, human trafficking, capital punishment, and the separation of church and state. Should Christians be concerned with these issues? How should Christians respond to unjust rulers? Can the practice of law be a Christian calling?

    The Principles of Culture Care

    Culture care sees culture as an ecosystem and applies what we have learned in creation care (of stewarding natural resources) to culture. In this class, we will examine areas of overlap between stewarding natural resources and cultural resources, and give theological foundations for developing culture care principles in your own journey.
