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.Credit Hours:1 - 2Audit Hours:1HIST 595VancouverGaining the Whole World: The Ambiguous Success of American Evangelicalism1.00 - 2.002014 Summer SessionJul 28 - Aug 1Mon, Tue, Wed, Thur, Fri08:00AM - 11:00AM«HIST 595
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.INDS 514VancouverThe Place of Law in God's World1.00 - 2.002014 Summer SessionJul 28 - Aug 1Mon, Tue, Wed, Thur, Fri08:00AM - 11:00AM«INDS 514
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?INDS 529VancouverLeading Well in Demanding TimesPeter Shaw1.00 - 2.002014 Summer SessionJul 28 - Aug 1Mon, Tue, Wed, Thur, Fri01:15PM - 04:15PM«INDS 529

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.
