CTS 181 Modern Anglican Theology

from 600.00

This course seeks to expose students to representative texts and thinkers of Anglicanism in the modern era. First, the class investigates how Anglican theology navigated the advent of modernism and liberalism in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Representative figures to be studied are E.B. Pusey and the Oxford Movement, the writers in Lux Mundi, and William Temple. Second, we look at Anglican theology in the middle of the twentieth century by reviewing the work of Michael Ramsey, Austin Farrer, Donald MacKinnon, and Anthony Thiselton. In addition, the post-liberalism of Hans Frei, and the public Biblical theology of William Stringfellow are studied as reflections of American contributions to the dialogue. Third, we explore the contemporary state of Anglophone Anglican theological discussion. Representative figures include Rowan Williams, Sarah Coakely, David Ford, Katherine Sonderegger, and the authors associated with Radical Orthodoxy. Finally, we look to the two-thirds world, where the largest numbers of Anglicans live, and study the work of John Mbiti, Desmond Tutu, and Jesse Mugambi. Throughout, we maintain a focus on discerning what distinguishes the theology as distinctly Anglican, focusing particularly on the utilization of biblical and partistic sources, and empahasis on spiritual practice, and a concern with social and cultural considerations.
