This is an introductory course in Roman Catholic theology that follows a thematic approach to the subject matter and is conducted in dialogue with Scripture and Seventh-day Adventism. During this course students will be exposed to the issues relating to the structure of Roman Catholicism, its beliefs, worship practices and social endeavors. The issues surrounding the calling of the Second Vatican Council, as well as its importance and aftermath, will also be explored.
Through various class activities, as well as the examination of primary and secondary Catholic literature, students will be encouraged to think in theological terms and articulate their thoughts on a variety of theological themes in Roman Catholicism. Students will also experience a Roman Catholic worship service and learn how to personally relate to Roman Catholic beliefs and practices. It is my hope that this class will help students to understand their Catholic neighbors and to contextualize the Adventist message to their needs.
