The course will meet for four weeks, beginning June 9, 2014 and ending July 3, 2014. There are no required meeting times. However, students should be aware that this is an intensive course that requires intensive work. The course will conclude with a 10-page written paper due July 31, 2014.

Course Description:
In the Old Testament, many theological questions are addressed that are still relevant for our own theological thinking. In this course, we will study the different Old Testament answers given to these questions and then extend the Old Testament discourse to our own time.

This course will examine such questions as: Who is God? How is God present among humans? How do humans know about God? What is nature/creation? How does God act in history? What is the human nature? What is sin and what can be done about it? How shall God be worshipped? What is the relationship of "us" and "the others"? How can the world be a place of justice and peace?
