This course explores the methods, trends, and the development of global theology, with specific attention to ways in which local culture, philosophies, politics and religion impact theological development. The course will utilize a biblically derived hermeneutic to interpret both the biblical text and local contexts. This hermeneutic will also be used to analyze contemporary global theological trends.
