Liberation Theologies

The goal of this course, as with any other, is ministry preparation. As a Great Commission seminary and college, we aim to send students around the world and around the country ready to encounter the concerns represented by the theologians in this course. The capable minister is able to understand the reason for, and the scope of these theologies in order to adequately analyze them with Scripture and direct its proponents to Christ.

To that end, this course examines the historical development and content of Latin American Liberation Theology, Black Theology, and Feminist Theology.
