From All Nations: Doing Intercultural Theology

Periode B: 14 november – 23 december 2022 Intercultural Theology (2,5 EC drs. Jos Colijn)

From All Nations – Doing Intercultural Theology (2,5 EC credits)

 In this module, you are introduced to ‘intercultural theology’. In this discipline, we study and reflect upon ‘conversations’ between Christians from different contexts and continents. What does it mean to be Christian in various cultures and contexts? What are possibilities and pitfalls of intercultural communication and intercultural theological reflection? Paul writes, that together with ‘all the saints’ we can ‘grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ’ (Eph. 3: 16-19). What can Dutch Christians learn from Christians in non-Western contexts?

Together we will reflect on these intercultural questions and reflect on our own Christian beliefs and practices ’through the eyes of another’.

There are six weekly meetings on Monday, starting from 14 November (13.30).
