About the The Bible: Cultural Critique and Transformation (2022) course
In this module 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.
Instead of focusing on questions of historical veracity and credibility of the biblical texts, students will consider how the Bible critiques certain cultural norms, and how these critiques might be voiced today.
We focus on questions of public theology and the role theology and biblical hermeneutics can play in the public square. This module examines ways of reading the Bible that challenge prevailing cultural norms today.
Ideal for anyone interested in thinking about how the Bible can speak into our current cultural and political context.
This is a postgraduate course open to ‘auditors’ e.g. those not enrolled for academic credit.
