The vast expansion of theological dialogue around the world in the last fifty years has inspired a new era of scholarship concerning the bible, theology, and the church, helping us to see again how each expression of faith in the past was shaped by and helped to shape its time and place in history. And these expanded horizons on the past are central in processes of theological renewal today as people wrestle with the challenges, fears, and hope for the “globalized” world of the 21st century. This course addresses: information explosions and knowledge revolutions; shifting scholarly landscapes; and their epistemological and methodological expressions in biblical studies, church history, pastoral and systematic theology and ethics. Also attention to scholarly research software and bibliographic tools, and on-line resources.  Lectures and seminars.  Required of all MA students.
