WM 780 Current Issues in Mission 2 credits

The first semester will focus primarily on Ethno-theologies, that is, theologies which have arisen predominantly in the Third World and which are generally a reaction to or a response to religious, cultural or political situations. While many of these theologies have their roots in the work and teachings of missions, most often they have deviated far from orthodox Christianity and moved into a mixture of Marxism and liberal theology.
