REL 112 Christian Discipleship



This course will focus on the beliefs, attitudes and practices that define Christian discipleship. Drawing upon both film and a variety of types of literature (both fictional and non-fictional), it will consider various possible cross-denominational understandings of what it means to be a Christian, contrasting those that focus on “beliefs” with those that focus on “character” and “practices.” Of particular interest will be the distinctive spirituality and morality associated with Christian life. The course will introduce the spiritual or devotional practices (both corporate and personal) by which Christians cultivate their relationship to God and through which Christian identity and character are formed. Finally, the course will look at ways Christians make decisions in relation to significant contemporary moral challenges. Credit(s): 3
