BBCL 501 - Bible and Its Interpreters

3 credits
This course is designed to lay a foundation for lifelong critical and constructive interpretation of the Christian Scriptures. We explore the Bible’s meaning in its historical, cultural, and theological contexts and examine the power, art, and ethics of the Word in public rituals of preaching, worship and protest. Assignments develop skills in close reading of biblical texts and the complicated ways they might speak to current struggles for ethical and theological insight.
