THRS 4301 - Advanced Christian Ethics

5 credit hours
This course will introduce theory and practice of moral formation, discernment, and conduct through the inter-disciplinary lens of Christian Ethics. Christian Ethics will be viewed as is the theological art-science bringing self-consciousness, method, intentionality, and sensitivity to the tasks of: 1) discerning what is good and right for any given situation and context, 2) discovering what forms individuals and society toward the good and what mal-forms away from it, and 3) finding the moral-spiritual power to act toward the good. Particular attention will be given to views from “the underside” of power and privilege, to the relationship of Christian scripture and traditions to contemporary moral deliberation, and to the ambiguity and complexity underlying moral dispute. The informing undercurrent of this course is hope and moral-spiritual empowerment in the face of profound moral challenges facing contemporary U.S. society. TE
