APPL 512

The Gospel, Discipleship & Cultural Engagement

Course Description

Today’s moral and social challenges are complex, and our social discourse is often contentious. Explore how artifacts ranging from hip-hop to architecture can enrich our understanding of culture, God’s grace, and human flourishing, and in turn shape our responses to these challenges. Learn about the narrative arc of Scripture that encompasses not only our personal salvation but also our public life as an essential aspect of faith. Develop practices of discipleship that seek to be faithful to a distinctive Christian identity while also fostering a rich life in common with others in a pluralistic society. In our theological reflections and case studies of contemporary issues, we’ll examine ways in which Christians become malformed in their cultural engagements—and ways in which we can make disciples who embody the gospel as the good and beautiful truth of God.

The friendships and relationships I’ve made during my time at Regent have opened my eyes to how immensely rich, diverse, and massive the body of Christ is. When I hear the stories of many of my classmates, I see Jesus’s immense provision and grace for the church.” — Alexander Marees
