THE 5312 Radical TheologiesRadical theologies, whether conservative, liberal, or post liberal, are those theologies in the 20th century that radically challenged accepted theological norms in Christendom. Despite their radical and deconstructive character they open new avenues of the Christian message. This course will deal with such radical theologies as Neo-Orthodoxy, fundamentalism, “death of God” theology, black theology, Latin American liberation theology, feminist theology, gay theology, the theology of married priesthood, radical orthodoxy, and post liberalism. 3 credits. Dr. Shimmyo.
THE 5313 Black TheologyThis course examines Black Theology—its origin in the 1960s, its relationship to the Black church, its dialogues with other theologies, and the rise of Womanist theology. In so doing, it introduces students to the relevant conditions, primary issues and themes of African and African-American history that contributed to the formation of religion, theological thought and moral reflection. Dr. Jones. 3 credits.
THE 5314 Theologies of Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X
This course will examine critically the life and thought of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X, identifying similarities and differences and evaluating their contributions in religion and politics for their time and for our own. 2 credits. Dr. Jones.
THE 5321 Theologies and Interfaith Dialogue
Authentic dialogue necessitates that each dialogue partner come to terms with her/his theology of the religious “other”, a field known as “Theologies of Religion.” In this course students will learn the prevailing Christian Theologies of Religion, reflect critically on their own presuppositions, demonstrate the ability to articulate a theology of the religious other, and become better prepared to engage in authentic interfaith encounters. 3 credits. Mr. Antal.
