Texts and Traditions 3

This course, taught by Kimlyn J. Bender and Roger E. Olson at George W. Truett Theological Seminary, is study and analysis of the major texts and traditions of the church in the twentieth century with an emphasis upon the interaction of Christianity with contemporary culture and the student’s ability to read contemporary culture with a view toward ministry.

Texts and Traditions 3 is the third of a three-part sequence of courses that focus upon the history of the development of Christian thought through an examination of primary readings from the Christian tradition. The focus of this course is upon modern theology in the 19th and 20th centuries. The identity of the Church in light of the Gospel as well as its interaction with contemporary culture and the modern world are primary themes of this period that will be explored.
