Suffering and Hope: Theology and Practice

KNP3501HY  L0101 · Cancelled on 2012/09/26
Offered in Summer 2013  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This course explores the practical and theological intersections of suffering and hope. Drawing from the Scriptures, social sciences, constructive and pastoral theology and practice, we will consider ways to understand, recognize and practice hope in the context of the devastations and suffering in life. Far from dismissing suffering  in the face of hope, this course explores the hidden intersections and discontinuities between suffering and hope and seeks out a deeper ground for hope that does not flee or obscure the trauma, grief and injustice in life, but faces it head on in theology and practice. Lectures, readings, seminars. Reflection paper, book review presentation, case study, class participation, final paper.
