This course introduces students to the central categories of Christian theology as these loci have been developed in what the Christian tradition has called Systematic Theology. The course will focus on how these major doctrinal themes have been articulated in the Reformed Protestant tradition, and set this perspective in dialogue with other traditional, contemporary, and ecumenical perspectives in theology. Each topic will be explored in relation to its classical formulation as well as with reference to modern (and postmodern) reassessments of the classical tradition in the cultural and global context of the Christian churches in the 21st century.

Systematic Theology in an Un-Systematic Age

TRT1101HS L9101 SESSION: Winter 2021 INSTRUCTOR(S):

COLLEGE: Trinity College SCHEDULE: Tue Online TIME: 19:00 to 21:00

CREDITS: One Credit

I don't believe in organized religion. My religious beliefs are way too disorganized. This New Yorker cartoon captures the spirit of the age regarding notions of Christian doctrine, dogmatics, or systematic theology. This course explores questions like the following: What does it mean for theology to attempt to offer a conceptual articulation of Christian claims about God at a time when many, including some in the church, have little interest in such a pursuit? What are the implications of this loss of faith in the possibility of a comprehensive and consistent formulation of Christian belief? How are Christians to make judgments about the appropriate sources, norms, and ends of Christian theology, and how these relate to wider spheres of intellectual and practical spheres of life? Class discussions and readings address such questions as they explore challenges confronting theological reflection in contemporary church and society. Attention will be given to differing approaches to the traditional topics in theology, including the concept of God, the person of Christ, sin and salvation, the Holy Spirit and the nature of the Church. By exploring the perspectives of Liberal, Neo-orthodox, Feminist-Liberationist, and Postmodern theologies, class sessions illustrate how different decisions about the nature of theology have a wide range of implications for how one conceives of Christian belief.
