THEO 400 - Theologies of the Christian Imagination

This course surveys the stances that Christian traditions have taken in relation to secular culture, especially its art and entertainment, and provides a conceptual understanding of the biblical and theological reasons for Christian involvement in culture, including a sense of the cultural mandate that humans, as God’s image-bearers, have for godly creativity and artistry. The tension between Christianity and the arts in the current market is explored in a way that encourages students’ awareness of their own responses to and involvement in these issues, both as appreciators and critics of Christian and non-Christian art.
