REL 227 - Global Christianities

4 credits (Fall or Spring)
Christianity has grown explosively in Africa, Latin America and Asia in recent time. This course explores these new Christian traditions and histories by focusing on one central question - Is Christianity a western religion? Answers will come harder than many assume. In today’s world, the phrase “white Christian” now is in fact as strange as “Swedish Buddhist” still sounds to many.

Prerequisite: REL 101 REL 102 REL 103 REL 104 REL 105 , or second year standing.
Note: Not offered every year.
Instructor: T. Dobe
