Constructive Theology

This course, taught by Kimlyn J. Bender and Roger E. Olson at George W. Truett Theological Seminary, is the culminating course following the Christian Texts & Traditions sequence covering central themes of Christian systematic theology using the materials of students’ studies (viz., biblical and theological). The course may focus on a central, unifying theme but in any case will progress through the sequence of themes. As a result of this course and its prerequisites, students should have a firm grasp of and be able to articulate their own doctrinal beliefs in relation to classical Christian orthodoxy.

Introduction to Pastoral Care

This course is taught by Angela Reed at George W. Truett Theological Seminary. Pastoral care is a fundamental component of every minister’s work. Ministers who want to be effective must develop and refine knowledge and skills for supporting and encouraging others through the joys and pains of life’s journey, recognizing their own world-view and the world-view of those to whom they offer care. These skills are an essential element in the gospel witness. This course will offer an introduction to pastoral care by exploring biblical-theological and psychological foundations for the process of personal and communal healing and restoration. Building upon these foundations, the course will introduce students to basic strategies necessary for providing pastoral care to people in congregations and other contexts. These abilities will be considered in light of various forms of personal and communal crises that care-givers are likely to encounter in their ministries.

Introduction to Church History: 1500 to the Present

This course, taught by Fr. Luke Dysinger at St. John’s Seminary, will introduce the history, theology, and spirituality of the Christian Church from 1500 to the present. The rich theological, spiritual, and moral heritage of Catholic thought during this period will be highlighted through study of primary sources. In order to profit from the cultural and ethnic diversity of the student body, students are encouraged to bring to classroom discussion sources that illustrate the development of their own cultural traditions: including, for example, the unique contributions of Hispanic and Asian Catholicism; as well as the theological, liturgical, and spiritual emphases that distinguish Western Catholicism from Eastern traditions such as the Maronite, Chaldean, Melchite, Malabar, and Ruthenian churches.

Philosophy of Nature
