This course is designed to introduce the theology major to key contemporary themes, issues, and theologians. The development of technology, the call for globalization, the interdisciplinary quality of contemporary theology, the threat of war and ecological fragility, and the radical pluralism of post-modernity demand new theological responses. In this course students will learn how to interpret the contemporary world theologically, will articulate contemporary issues for theological reflection and discussion, and will employ the Christian tradition of theological imagination, dipping into the deep well of tradition in order to write and speak God-language for the present and future. This course is required of all theology majors. 1 credit
