The Gospel in a Multicultural & Multifaith World

This course introduces a foundational theology and essential practices that guide Christian engagement with people of other cultures and religious communities. The complex and interwoven nature of culture and religion is explored from a biblical-Reformed theological perspective. Students are taught to honor the goodness of creation and the dignity of the image of God across people groups, cultures, and religions. Special attention is given to religious experience, tradition, and ritual practices through the lenses of general revelation and Scripture. Students engage in Christian practices of receptive humility and reflective commitment which honor the universal common humanity of God’s image bearers while upholding the unique and universal salvific significance of Jesus.
