BBST 687 - The Kin-dom of God and Social Change

3 credits
Is the “Kingdom of God” good for human society? This interdisciplinary course, rooted in biblical studies but engaging political philosophy and theology, sociology, ethics, and the arts, explores the career of the “Kingdom of God”, a concept or vision central to the preaching, teaching and action of the movement centered around Jesus. We will examine this concept in the Bible, in the context of ancient religious and political thought, in the history of Christian theology, and in the self-understanding and practice of communities working for social change. Prerequisite: BBST 511 .
