IDVP 201 (3)
Provides a biblical, theological and missiological foundation for ministries of development and disaster relief. Looks at the whole narrative of Scripture and the concept of missio Dei, how poverty is conceptualized in the Old and New Testaments, including how the Early Church and then missions throughout history address issues such as social justice as part of Christian missions. Also looks at whether transformation is a biblical concept, and how to balance evangelism and the verbal proclamation of the Gospel with development and disaster relief. Prerequisite: IDVP 101.
