Description: 

This course will examine a variety of theological voices coming out of contexts of abuse. How do we do theology in churches which include both survivors and perpetrators of violence? We will be reading about sin, repentance, restorative justice, healing, and forgiveness in the contexts of child abuse, spousal violence, and abuse by clergy. How do churches help or hinder those in need of healing?
