Course Description

Compassion and justice are integral to who God is.  These are reflected in God’s acts in history and God’s actions today, and are fundamental to God’s mission (missio Dei). What are the biblical and theological foundations for compassion and social justice? How has the Church historically related to the issue of social justice and how has it understood and demonstrated compassion? This course will trace the issue of compassion and social justice through scripture, church history, and missions, and examine different models used. The students will develop a comprehensive theological framework to understand the role and practice of compassion and social justice within the ministry of the church.
