BBL 2083 Honors: Integrated Theology I

Three hours
A six-hour course sequence studying the development of Christian faith and practice from the early Christian centuries down to the present. The course will be historical, in that the faith and practice of the Christian tradition will be studied in specific cultural and historical contexts and will also be theological, tracing the development of ideas and how they play themselves out in the practice of Christian faith. In addition, the course will present a brief survey of Islamic faith and practice under the assumption that Christian faith and practice is best understood when it is seen in the light of competing alternatives. At critical points throughout the study, similarities and differences in how a specifically Christian approach to theology and practice will be discussed in light of the theology and practice of Islam. The focus of the course is on primary sources.
