- Course Description
This course introduces students to the New Testament, a fascinating collection of tales, poems, letters, and apocalyptic visions. Our aim is to understand how these texts radically transformed Eastern and Western cultures and worldviews and how they still permeate our contemporary life and thinking. Grades will be based on in-class discussions and assignments, three take-home exams, and some extra credit. Students will walk away from this class with a basic knowledge of all the major texts of the New Testament and with a new understanding of the transformative potential of religious practices and ideas.
