email from fuller seminary

In this regard, I wanted to give you an update on the approval process for your MP541: Living the Text in a Postmodern Context Expanded Course Description. The MA Committee reviewed the proposed ECD and are very excited about what you’re going to do with the course. They’re especially pleased at the nature of the assignments, and expect students will be drawn to the nontraditional approach they represent.

MP541: Living the Text in a Postmodern Context :

This course will explore the communication of the Biblical text in a contemporary world, with particular missiological reference to the use of the Bible in the postmodern, emerging church. It will apply theological insights around text, community and culture, to the task of maintaining and communicating the integrity of the Biblical text with reference to postmodernity. As a result of the course, students will be better equipped to read and communicate the Biblical text in a postmodern context.

An intensive of 4 hours per day taught over 2 weeks. The course will combine both theory and practice, believing that learning often happens through seeing new models, while new practices necessitate a shift in the under girding values. This will include one field trip to experience the use of images in communication.

  1. When are you teaching the class, and when can I sign up??????? I am SO THERE, and I’m bringing half the school with me, if at all possible. Fabulous! Can’t wait to have you here with us again, because we can’t afford to move to New Zealand yet, and we miss you!
