The Bible: Cultural Critique and Transformation
- Course Dates: Mon 20 June 2022 to Thu 23 June 2022
This module focuses on ways of reading the Bible that challenge prevailing cultural norms today.
Students get the chance to explore the relationship between reality as depicted in biblical texts and reality as we experience it in our current cultural context. Consideration of how the Bible critiques certain cultural norms, and how these critiques might be voiced today is given priority over of questions of historical veracity and credibility of the biblical texts.
We also explore questions of public theology and the role theology and biblical hermeneutics can play in the public square.
Those not enroled in postgraduate study may join the module as an auditor.
