Topics In Biblical Justice

ICS 370
Intercultural Studies & Languages, Theology

The notion of biblical justice is examined through a series of readings from Scripture and secondary sources. Specific topics are investigated by the student, who will engage in a participant/observer model of research and learning experience germane to justice issues. This course embraces an "applied hermeneutics" model in which students explore biblical teaching on evil, sin and injustice for current social problems and theological formulation. Topics vary from year to year with attention given to such justice issues as poverty, human trafficking, homelessness, HIV/ AIDS, and child labor.
