Christians in the Public Square
What has the Christian faith to say in informing and shaping the way we live, the way we make decision and the kind of moral values we adopt in the world outside the church?This course will introduce students to a variety of perspectives and responses to Christian engagement in the public square. Some of the questions which we will look at include: What has the Christian faith to do with the public square? Why should Christians be involved in, or be concerned about what is happening in the wider world outside the Church? Should the Church/Christians engage in political issues?
