Contenuti: A systematic exploration of the theology of Missio Dei as the Trinitarian missio – christological, pneumatological, eschatological - in relation to the nature and mission of the Church, its internal life and order and its engagement with the world and contemporary questions. Obiettivi: To build upon students’ knowledge in ways that are creative, critical and constructive; to facilitate a grasp of the range, depth and complexity of the areas covered; to explore the theological approaches and resources available to the Church’s evangelical mission to the challenges presented by contemporary cultures; to develop their own theologically synthetic approach to the dynamic and central understanding Missio Dei and the Church’s evangelical witness. Prerequisiti: An advanced knowledge of English. Metodo di insegnamento: Lectures and discussions. Modalità di valutazione: Two short essays (after 4th and 8th session) and a final synthesis paper.
