This course, taught by Patrick S. Franklin at Providence Theological Seminary, aims to expand students’ competence in biblical interpretation and theological reflection. Students will develop a deeper understanding of theological study as formative spiritual discipline essential to shaping the mind and heart for ministry praxis and cultural engagement. Within this framework, students will consider historical and contemporary approaches to biblical interpretation, analysis of trends in contemporary church and culture, and theological tensions affecting the church and its mission in North America and other parts of the world.
