From the beginning, Christianity has been at its heart a religion of learning. The Greek word rendered in English as “disciple” is not originally a religious word, but simply means a “learner.” Christ thus charges his apostles to “Go out and make learners of all the nations” (Matthew 28.19). In this course, students will face up to the crisis of catechesis and Christian formation within a contemporary church struggling to come to terms with the secularity and diversity of a post-Christendom world. Drawing on insights from ancient Christian tradition as well as contemporary authors and thought, students will creatively explore what it means to teach, learn and live the Christian faith today.
