Christian Thought and Culture II
This course and its partner, CTC I, are organized around the theme of “story.” What does it mean to live out the Christian Story comprehensively and with integrity in the midst of cultures shaped to some or a great extent by counter-stories? What does it mean, in the broadest terms, to confess that Jesus is Lord – a statement that lays claim to all of human thought and activity, public as well as private, to all of history, and indeed to the entire created world? Along with CTC I, the course is intended to provide an historical, theological and cultural complement to OT and NT Foundations, and Church History I & II. CTC I covers the period from the beginning of Christianity to the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century and its immediate aftermath. CTC II covers the period from the early seventeenth century down to the present.
It is recommended to have taken INDS 501 first. Recommended co-requisites for this course are BIBL 502 and HIST 502.
