This course explores the diverse expressions of Christian spirituality. Students will discuss the definitions given to the term "spirituality" and consider methodological issues in the academic study of spirituality whether these are historical, anthropological or theological in approach. Emphasis is placed on a wide reading in the Christian tradition of both primary and secondary literature in order to assist the student in grasping the integral link between the lived faith of Christians and the theological articulation of that faith. Spiritualties will be seen in the context of their historical emergence, the unique contributions each makes to Christianity, and the link they demonstrate between spiritual life and theological insight.

This course develops in students the knowledge, skill, and practical wisdom to be interreligious leaders in today's world. Interreligious leadership is energetic engagement with the religious diversity that characterizes our societies and communities today. Interreligious leaders engage their own and other religious traditions to find wisdom and other spiritual resources that fuel their inner and outer work. They pay attention with curiousity and appreciation to religious differences, and then proactively build mutual understanding across these differences through dialogue. Through interaction with guest speakers, community engagement activities, case studies, role plays, a range of course readings and videos, and reflective writing to integrate learning, this bridge course will widen religious literacy well beyond the Christian tradition, foster practical leadership skills, and expose students to a range of professional scenarios where interreligious issues generate challenge and opportunity. Drawing on the fields of spirituality, leadership development, interreligious dialogue, comparative theology, and conflict resolutions, this course prepares students to contribute to human flourishing in a more just society through successful and satisfying professional lives in which they are engaged with their own and other's religious identities,commitments and practices. Practical examples and cases will come from a range of industries, business functions, and professions, such as health care, manufacturing, technology, education, public policy, law, engineering, marketing and finance.

The literature of early Christianity is filled with ambiguity concerning women's role in the churches and in the story of salvation. Women's subordination was justified on the basis of Eve's role in bringing evil and sin into the world. At the same time, women were presented as heroines and models of the ideal Christian life. They held roles of leadership within early church communities, even while early church writers argued against their right to do so. This course will examine a wide range of primary texts by and about women in the early Christian churches in order to explore the relationship between faith and culture as the context for understanding women's role and status in the early church. It will also look at ways in which these texts might be relevant for the modern context. This course fulfills the Human Diversity requirement in the core curriculum.

This course provides an introduction to theological reflection on sex, gender, and the body in the Christian tradition and the Islamic religious traditions. It is a comparative theological course in that it juxtaposes texts of diverse perspectives from these two religious traditions in order to seek deeper understanding of sex, gender, and the body. This “Bridge 2 course” prompts students to reflect on their vocation as a sexual, gendered, and embodied being, and to do so interreligiously. While the course will take into consideration how theology has collaborated with patriarchal, imperial, ethnic, heteronormative, and socio‐economic powers, the central focus will be on contemporary feminist, queer, and post‐colonial theologies that attempt to undermine oppressive systems in Asian, Latin American, North American, Middle Eastern, and/or other contexts. This course also fulfills the Human Diversity core requirement and is crosslisted with Women’s Studies. Prerequisites: THEO101, THEO 2xx or THEO 3xx, and PHIL115

This course analyzes some of the most profound evils of the modern era, and attempts to relate them to traditional and contemporary discussions of divine and human responsibility. It is especially concerned with the unique features of modern evils, including their presence in certain social structures, political systems and scientific technologies. Specific subjects for study, which will vary from year to year, may include, the Holocaust; slave trade; genocidal colonization in Africa, Asia, and the Americas; the threat of nuclear annihilation. This course investigates how religious faith might be re-interpreted in light of these evils, and whether the notion of a suffering deity is theologically appropriate for Christian faith.

The literature of early Christianity is filled with ambiguity concerning women's role in the churches and in the story of salvation. Women's subordination was justified on the basis of Eve's role in bringing evil and sin into the world. At the same time, women were presented as heroines and models of the ideal Christian life. They held roles of leadership within early church communities, even while early church writers argued against their right to do so. This course will examine a wide range of primary texts by and about women in the early Christian churches in order to explore the relationship between faith and culture as the context for understanding women's role and status in the early church. It will also look at ways in which these texts might be relevant for the modern context. This course fulfills the Human Diversity requirement in the core curriculum.

Attention will be given to the meaning and roots of the notions of culture, nationalism and racism as they appear as questions in Black theological though, including African religions, Islam and The Nation of Islam, along with Afro-American Christian theologies.

If to work is to share in the creative activity of God, then what specific challenge does this pose for an attorney given the grinding realities of the legal profession? If to be a professional is to live out a tripartite relationship between self, client, and a higher standard, then how does an attorney determine, much less respond to such a standard? Through a close reading of a variety of theological texts, treaties, case studies and rules of professional conduct, this course will address these questions and, in so doing, attempt to fashion a paradigm for the Christian practice of law. Within this paradigm, emphasis will be placed on the meaning of justice, law, rights and responsibilities. An ethic of care that fosters the development of a compassionate world and a common life will be emphasized. Prerequisite: THEO 101 and one 200-level or 300-level THEO course, and PHIL 115

Through the ages, the relationship between theology and the arts has been mutually enriching, resulting in some of the world's masterpieces of visual art, architecture, music, and literature. The relationship, too, has been strained by iconoclastic movements which express fear that the arts tempt people with idolatry. In this course, students will consider the theological dimensions of the complex relationship between theology and the arts. Emphasis on historical periods, themes, doctrines, intersections, and types of art will vary according to the expertise of the instructors.

In this course we will study Christian theology and practice in a context of great suffering and struggle. We analyze the various forms that Christianity has taken in Latin America from the period of the Spanish Conquest to the present. We will study the history of the Church in Latin America, but more importantly we will examine the theological issues raised in each era to see how Christians have lived their faith under different circumstances. As we examine the complex interplay of Church, poverty, and power in Latin American history, we will examine theologies and spiritualties of evangelization, liberation, martyrdom, poverty, and the Church. We will also study and critique specifically Latin American methods and approaches to the theological task itself. Finally, we will examine the coming of the Latin American Church to the United States through immigration. This course fulfills the Human Diversity requirement in the core curriculum.

In the last half century religious diversity in the West has rapidly increased, bringing people from different religious traditions into daily contact. This has resulted in new conflicts, sometimes in violence, but also in new collaborations and friendships. Drawing on several approaches to interreligious conflict and relations, this course will examine the dynamic encounters that take place between and among people of different religious identities and ask students to reflect on their own role in religiously complex situations. Students will consider this interreligious reality and their role in it against the backdrop of their own individual relationship to spirituality, faith, and theology. To foster interreligious understanding beyond the classroom, students in this course will directly engage with the religious diversity of Minneapolis-St. Paul. This course is a community-engagement course requiring a minimum of 15 hours of interreligious community engagement for all students enrolled (NOTE: service hours may contribute toward BUSN 200 requirement when BUSN200 is taken in same semester). Prerequisites: THEO 101, and one 200-level or 300-level THEO course, and PHIL 115.
