About the The Bible: Cultural Critique and Transformation (2022) course
This module explores the relationship between the way certain biblical texts present reality and how such portrayals can be applied in our current cultural context. We will examine a variety of biblical texts and discuss how our reading of them impacts our actions.
We will also consider how our various cultural starting points shape our understanding and critique of Scripture.
This is a postgraduate course open to ‘auditors’ e.g. those not enrolled for academic credit.
