WYP2618HF  L0101
Offered in Fall 2014  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2013 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This course will consider definitions of Gospel, church and culture, and some of the different ways Christians have historically understood the relationship between the three. We will examine worldviews as a tool for understanding cultures, and look specifically at what the shift from modernity to postmodernity means for the church and its mission. The course will explore this subject referencing Biblical material, the experience of cross-cultural missionaries, and various artifacts of contemporary culture. These will form the backdrop for discussion about what it means to be a missional church in contemporary North America. Lectures, class discussion on readings. Evaluation: two short book reports, chapter summaries on the primary text, 5 minute oral presentation, one paper.
