With the contemporary interest in spirituality, it is imperative that the Church establish a comprehensive theology of Christian spirituality that can inform the life and witness of Christian believers. This course presents such a theology of spirituality: a theology that is biblical, practical, and contemporary, accounting for and enabling spiritual formation and nurture in a post-modern, pluralistic, materialistic society. In addition, the course provides a theological foundation for a life of prayer that will empower and sustain the believer in life and ministry.
Upon completion of this course, the student should be able to:
- Recognize the role of ministry in the lives of believers.
- Gain insight into the theology of spirituality such that he/she is able to develop a practical model of spiritual formation within congregational life.
- Appreciate the diversity of theological traditions in Christian spirituality.
- Develop a model of spiritual life and discipline that is both theological and practical.
