What we in the U.S. call “theology” or “biblical interpretation” is in actuality Western European / American theology and biblical interpretation — heavily influenced by Enlightenment philosophy. The ”other” theologies and biblical interpretations have added adjectives—“black”, “womanist”, “liberation”, etc.—that treat them as sub-groups of standard theology or even as outside of “true” theology. But can we afford to exclude these other voices from the conversation? The course will explore interpretive voices and see how they contribute to a better understanding of the biblical story.
