Methods and Models of Contextual Theology

11 January - 20 March, 2021

This course provides an introduction to Contextual Theology and allows students to study the origins of the discipline and its validity within the field of theology. Using Stephen Bevans’ Models of Contextual Theology (Maryknoll, N.Y.: Orbis Books, 2002) as a core text, students of this course are able to examine and evaluate the methods and models of contextual theology drawn from a multitude of Christian traditions and from different parts of the world. Particular attention is paid to models of contextual theology from Asia, Africa and Latin America, with a view to driving home a core objective of the course, which is to make students aware that all theology, including western models, are of necessity contextual.

This course is delivered online, allowing students to work through each week’s material according to their own timetable.  Each week, students contribute to an online discussion, and participate in a scheduled live discussion (via videoconferencing) to share reflections on the week’s learning.
