Contemporary Christian theology incorporates multiple voices and perspectives: from theologies of spirituality to theologies of social change, and from modern to postmodern approaches. Explore seven distinct families of Christian thought and practice today, including theologies of spirituality, Biblical theologies, narrative theologies, theologies of community, public theologies, theologies of liberation, feminist theologies, and other contextual theologies. Develop your own map through this terrain and articulate your own approach to contemporary theology.
Dig deeper into Biblical characters, comparing how sacred texts describe them with how cultures have captured them. Explore these characters and their stories through various art forms (theatre, visual arts, music and poetry), guided by faithful artists in each of these fields.
