Description[edit | edit source]
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. The topic of emphasis for this course is homelessness.
Course Philosophy and Rationale[edit | edit source]
This course assumes a Christian worldview in which Jesus is the solution to man's problems and the answer to man's questions. The guiding rationale is that if attempts are made to rectify man's problems according to Biblical models of Justice, then the answers and solutions will be more robust and effective due to a basis in a non-changing code: the Holy Bible.
