Course Area of Study:

An examination of Christian theology as it finds contemporary expression in the liberation theologies of North America, Asia, Africa, and Latin America. The birth of liberation theological movements in the latter part of the 20th century is viewed against the background of the Enlightenment and the emergence of orthodox, liberal, and neo-orthodox theologies. Students have the opportunity to clarify their own theological stance by engaging theological perspectives that are radically different from their own.
