Post-Modernism is having a profound influence on the Church, from within and without. Changing ideas about the source and nature of truth are affecting Christians’ lives and ministry. In this course, learners examine current trends in contemporary theology, and how these trends arose. The course focuses on the theologies that were prevalent in the 1960’s, including Theology of Hope, Liberation Theology, Feminist Theology, Process Theology, New Age Theology, and four forms of Post-modern Theology. Students are encouraged to draw from the course content so as to relate and communicate better to their post-modern world.

The reason that I gave the course a neutral rating is; there was little practical information in the lectures. This course did heighten my awareness of the many radical liberal theological teachings which are propagated in the world today as well as in the past. I understand the need to be well informed concerning all the wiles of the devil, which many of them were covered in this course. I really believe in studying these, sometimes the significance of Conservative Biblical theology may get lost in the weeds of radical thought, which is certainly the goal of many theological views. Again, I am not saying there is no need for this information. I am saying; I believe there should always be a strong presence of sound Biblical doctrine to rebut the postmodern theological teaching of this course. This may add to the length of the lectures and course but it would offer clarity from a Biblical perspective to the error of many of these philosophical approaches.Kim

I enjoyed the course, Some areas of improvement would be if the teacher applied better applications. For example there were some difficult areas to understand and if he tried to explain these areas in a simplified manner perhaps with modern day examples the ideas would have come across better. Apart from that I think he did a fair job. Thank you, In ChristJason
