Church: Power, Controversy, Future

This course explores the nature and mission of the church from the early Christian communities to the present day. Special attention is given to the theology of the church that emerged from the Second Vatican Council, especially the essential communal nature of Christianity. Attention is also given to challenges that confront the church today, including issues of sexuality, women in the church, celibacy, and how the church is called both to witness and to be challenged by society.
