"Educating for Shalom: A Theology of Citizenship for a Complex World"
Julia K. Stronks, J.D., Ph.D.
In what way does a Christian liberal arts college respectfully and appropriately educate global citizens to navigate a complex world in which religious practices and beliefs compete? How will Christian students refrain from falling into relativism or vague spirituality if they are working with people committed to different worldviews? One answer lies in the development of a theology of citizenship. Introducing a technique that the U.S. Supreme Court has developed, this presentation will demonstrate how Christians can hold firmly to the convictions of their faith while still working in a religiously diverse environment.
