ID/ME246 : Asian Theology (3 Credit)
Academic Year : 2022
About this course
Christianity has been in Asia for at least 200 years, and Asians have been theologising – reflecting theologically – through the issues of the context. That task continues as Christians today also consider critically the issues such as ancestor veneration, materialism, inequalities, among others and present the church’s views on them. Secondly, we should communicate the truths of the gospel sin, salvation, and redemption in ways which resonate within the Asian context.
This course will critically explore some theologies as expressed by Asian Christians and determine their value and place in the Asian context today. Students will also learn to develop frameworks that will guide them in the task of understanding the Asian context so as to begin theologising in ways that are suitable, relevant and meaningful. Students should then be able to lead others into developing theologies which will be biblically grounded, historically connected and contextually relevant.
