Offered in Fall 2011  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2010 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This course will consider definitions of Gospel, church and culture, and some of the different ways Christians have historically understood the relationship between the three. We will consider worldviews as a tool for understanding cultures, and look specifically at what the shift from modernity to postmodernity means for the church and its mission. The course will include Biblical material, reference to the experience of overseas missionaries, and expressions of contemporary culture such as movies. These will form the backdrop for discussion about what it means to be a missional church in contemporary North America.Lectures, guest speakers, class discussion. Evalutions: book reports, journal, movie report, paper.
