The Christian Church in the American Public Sphere
|Field of Study||Ethics|
In this course, we ask: How do Christian persons and communities participate in the public sphere? What are their motivations, what do they accomplish, and how are they affected by participation in the public sphere? Alongside these descriptive questions are more normative ones: What exactly should be the relationship between religion and politics? Between faith and culture? Between church and state? Course assignments include an analysis of the role of religion in electoral politics.
