This course builds on REL-253 in theological and practical ways. Students examine the Biblical imperative for Gospel proclamation in order to provide the theological framework for understanding the Church’s role in Missio Dei. Cultural anthropology addresses the question of the faithful contextualization of the Gospel in human contexts so that people believe and communities are transformed. Students will study intercultural communication theory and practice to encourage a greater awareness of the challenges and opportunities of announcing the Gospel of the Kingdom.
