SCR 5502 The Bible: Theological and Historical IntroductionThis course is designed for students from non-Christian backgrounds who have little exposure to the Bible aside from its use in Unification doctrinal texts. It will familiarize the student with most-beloved passages from the Old and New Testaments and their meaning for a religious life. As an introduction to the discipline of Biblical Study, it will briefly introduce critical questions of authorship, redaction and context; however the chief focus will be the Bible as a fount of theological knowledge for use in ecumenical activities and the proclamation of the Unificationist message. 3 credits. Dr. Wilson
