THEO 575 - Contemporary Theology


This course will survey the theological and philosophical trends from the nineteenth century to the present. The major doctrinal themes examined will be the doctrines of God and revelation; the Trinity; and Christology. In addition, various approaches to theology will be considered: liberation theology, narrative theology, feminist and womanist theology, African-American theology, African theology, Asian theology and evangelical theology. Rigorous study in the philosophical foundations of these theologies and their representatives will be examined. The hermeneutical and theological methods of these systems of theology will offer a basis for comparison and evaluation. Important philosophical themes to be considered are existentialism, modernism, and postmodernism.
