An Introduction to Asian Theology

KNT2621HF  L0101
Offered in Fall 2010  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2009 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

The purpose of this course is to recognize themes and insights that are developed uniquely by Asian theologians, mainly from China, Japan, and Korea, such as C.S. Song, Kosuke Koyama, and Korean Minjung Theologians. This course will help non-Asian students to get some knowledge of Asian cultures and Asian indigenous religions, and Asian students to develop a theology based on their Asian heritages and experiences. Consequently, "Asian Theology" will help theological students to transcend Western parochialism and contribute to a development of Christian theology for the coming multicultural and pluralistic century we have been already embarked. The course will be in seminar format with lecture input, analysis of readings, student presentation and class discussion. Prerequisite: A basic introductory theology course.
