Pentateuch

Pentateuch is a study of Genesis through Deuteronomy. It builds on the methodology of the first Inductive Biblical Studies course by further use of what has been previously learned and by emphasizing the study of books as wholes.  Accordingly, there is special focus on the initial survey of books as wholes, the interpretation of parts of books in the context of the book as a whole and the synthesis of the book.  In addition, attention is given to thinking, valuing, and living biblically by placing individual passages within their larger canonical contexts and by learning how to apply Scripture to life and ministry.

Faith and Science

This course investigates the relationship between Orthodox Christianity and scientific inquiry. Students will critically reflect on the historical emergence of science as a discipline distinct from theology, and how major discoveries in the natural sciences have shaped the discourse concerning Christianity in public life. Topics covered in the class include: cosmology; evolution; genetics; classical and quantum physics; sociology; medicine; neurobiology and the science of consciousness. Students will consider how scientific discovery affects theological understanding, and how Christian faith guides the application of science and technology. Providing students with a foundation in scientific discourse, this course will also give students an opportunity to craft Orthodox Christian apologetics.

Care for the Earth: Ethics and the Environment

This course is an interdisciplinary basic introduction to environmental ethics from the perspective of the Catholic intellectual tradition. Various environmental ethics methods are explored, however, this course will focus on an inductive virtue ethics methodology. Through the study of themes found in biblical texts; Christian doctrinal sources; and Christian ethics sources and norms, we will expose a Catholic moral vision for sustainable living, and action on behalf of environmental justice. In particular, theological and ethics sources from the Franciscan school and Catholic Social Teaching on environmental responsibility will be studied.

THE Emergence of the Image: Human Evolution from Scientific, Philosophical, and Theological Perspectives

This course brings into dialogue four approaches to human origins for the sake of understanding what it means to be human. To understand human emergence, biological evolution, paleoanthropology, philosophical anthropology and theological anthropology all have a part to play, because understanding is achieved only when many points-of-view are unified in a way that respects the competence and autonomy of each.
