Introduction to Theological Reflection

This course, taught by Nate Inglis at Bethany Theological Seminary, introduces theology as a practice of creative and critical reflection on humanity, the world, God, and Jesus from a faith perspective. In this class, perennial theological themes are placed in dialogue with insights from the natural sciences and current social justice issues that challenge Christian communities today. By connecting the theological tradition with science and social justice, students consider how to reflect on and express faith in an informed dialogue with other fields of study that are essential to a holistic understanding of our world today.
