This course will explore the intellectual content of historic Christian faith as it has been expressed in the ecumenical creeds and other features of its intellectual tradition. Students will be immersed in the unique contributions of the three great communions of Christian Tradition (Orthodoxy, Catholicism and Protestantism) and in the Wesleyan spiritual tradition that underlies DWU. The class will outline aspects of Christian spirituality such as prayer, meditation and lectio divina with a view toward how these beliefs and practices can be re-energizing for contemporary spirituality.
