POLS-399   The Christian Faith & Pub Life

This capstone course examines the relationship between the Christian faith and public life. The first half of the course reviews and addresses Christian (and specifically, Reformed Christian) public responsibilities and the ways such responsibilities may relate to life in contemporary pluralistic, democratic contexts. The second half of the course permits students to engage in a major research project that focuses on the relationship between their Christian faith and some particular aspect of public life. Prerequisites: junior or senior standing, biblical foundations I or theological foundations I, developing a Christian mind, and philosophical foundations.
