Reading Paul Missionally
This course in missional hermeneutics explores some of Paul’s letters to discover Paul’s understanding of the missio Dei (God’s mission) in Christ and by the Spirit, and our participation in that mission.
We will examine Paul’s vision of individuals and communities that not only speak the good news but also embody it in such missional practices as faithfulness, reconciliation, justice, and enemy-love.
The close, missionally sensitive reading of his letters will combine with missionally sensitive readings of the students’ own contexts to generate missional conversations and guide practice.
The course will include two three-day intensives facilitated by Dr George Wieland with input from Dr Michael Gorman.
