Cursusdoelen
At the end of this course, participants are able to
  1. Describe and explain a number theological understandings of how ‘the Gospel’ relates to ‘culture’ and provide a well-argued personal position with regards to this issue;
  2. Explain different approaches to contextualization and will have critical tools to explore with regard to specific local Christian practices and formulations of the Christian message what it means to be (a) contextually relevant and (b) faithful to the Gospel of Christ;
  3. Apply theological tools to analyse the cultural gap between local Christian communities and other communities and networks sharing the same social space and that hinder mutual understanding;
  4. Critically evaluate models of cross-cultural communication from a practical-theological and systematic-theological perspective.
Inhoud
This course will create a greater awareness for the cultural distance that often exists between local expressions of the Christian faith and the variety of communities and networks that surround it and in which its members may also move. It will introduce and critically evaluate models of contextualisation that help root the Christian message and praxis in these various contexts and models for proclaiming the Gospel in a multicultural world that allows communities to both embrace cultural diversity within itself and of its contexts, yet remain an expression of the “one, holy, catholic and apostolic church”. Course sessions include theories of communication, theologies of culture, the role of community in communication and the communicative power of practices.
