A Theology for Aliens: Hauerwas, Willimon and the 21st Century Church

A Theology for Aliens: Hauerwas, Willimon and the 21st Century Church   [THEO 0670]

  Course Dates: Wednesday May 14, 2014 to Saturday May 17, 2014
  Faculty: Robert Dean
Course Description

Christians in North America have increasingly found themselves as strangers within their culture.  In their seminal "manual for missionaries" to a post-Christendom Western world, Resident Aliens, Stanley Hauerwas and William Willimon argue that this development presents an incredible opportunity for the church to recover its true identity and missional calling.  This is a "conference wrap-around" course that includes participation in a conference celebrating the 25th anniversary of Resident Aliens, featuring key-note addresses by Stanley Hauerwas and William Willimon, as well as pre- and post-conference work.  Leading up to the conference, students will study the writings of both authors and consider the contribution their work could make to the renewing of the church in the 21st century. This will be followed by an online conference debrief.

Dates: May 14-15, on-campus; May 16-17, off-campus (Resident Aliens: 25 Years Later, Toronto Airport Mariott, 901 Dixon Road). Tickets to the conference will be provided by the Seminary for those who are registered in the course.
